Library services is again pleased to announce that another of our amazing Teacher Librarians has received a grant to purchase needed materials. Rosemarie King, our TL at El Capitan recently wrote a proposal for the Chevron Fuel Your School Grant through DonorsChoose.org. She received notification yesterday that she was awarded the grant for the books. Her proposal was for "Quality Picture Books for Reading Buddies." The Reading Buddies program between El Cap and McKinley has grown over the past few years. It is important for our students to practice reading the books prior to reading to their Reading Buddies in order to gain confidence and prepare guiding questions for the McKinley students (one of the classes is an intervention class with struggling readers). We are thrilled that we will now have more quality books for this program and that Rosie has developed such an innovation and effective program as Reading Buddies.
