We are a Prek program that is seperate from our grade school. Our school libririan reads to us at least once a week and we would like to purchase some books that would be appropriate for our age level and collaborate with our program. These books will be used to supplement our small library in our building that we allow families to use and checkout materials from for use at home.
Students will be offered a wide range of reading materials and subjects consistent with the families interests and backgrounds. We can add books about pertinent subjects for the families in our program such as new siblings, adoption, divorce, death of a loved one, etc.
We would purchases books that the parents or families suggest. We will send out a survey with some suggested topics and titles then ask families for suggestions. We would try to purchase the most requested books.
Our Prek program has been operational for several years but has recently experienced a drop in funding due to our state\'s budget cut this grant would help to supplement our programs parent education and training component.
