Good morning everyone! I'm a media specialist at a high school in Middle TN. We have 2200 students, and 80% are on free and reduced lunch. Our school was built in 1972 and some of our books are older than this! A student asked for a film-making book last week. I was excited to look up and see that we had one... then discovered it was from 1969!!!
I started in Jan. of this year. Our average collection age was 2006, and we've worked really hard to raise it to 2009. We still have a long way to go. We get about $2-$3 per kid for our budget, and each book is around $20! We don't even get our $$ until October. We are asking for help. If you are able, would you consider purchasing a book or two from our Amazon wish list? They get shipped directly to our school. Our kids deserve the best! Wish List: http://a.co/jjRwljc
If you aren't able to purchase, would you please SHARE this post for me? You never know who is willing and able to help, and I want the best for all of my students. I hope everyone has an amazing school year!
