Reading Matters Campaign

The purpose of this project is to open our doors to the community in which we teach by sharing our favorite passages from a book whose words caught in our imaginations and lingered there for days, weeks, and years.

Those words might have come from a poem, a speech, a novel, or a scientific tract. For some reason, they matter to you. You read them and then you say why.

We want the families of our students to know why reading matters to us; we want to inspire them to read too.
