Shattuck Elementary School in Shattuck, OK
Shattuck Elementary is located in rural Northwest Oklahoma. We are a small town with a tremendous amount of pride for our school. We have a student population of about 200, and with the recent economic crisis, many of our families have experienced financial hardships. We are a Title I school with over 40 percent of our students receiving free and reduced lunches. This fact alone has allowed us to begin the process of transitioning from a Target-Assisted Title I program to a Schoolwide Title I program.
And our school is feeling some of those same effects of the economy’s downfall. We want the best for our students, but don’t always have the budget to spend on additional instructional materials like classroom library books. Reading is such a vital skill that will greatly enhance our students’ ability to be successful in the future, whether in secondary school, college, or the work force.
As a member of Paperbackswap.com, you realize the impact that being able to read can make in students’ lives. Your book donation will go a long way to improving students’ reading abilities and enhancing their joy for reading. Thank you for your generous support of our students and for giving us the “gift” of reading!!
Kasandra Nelson, Principal
