A summer reading initiative in 2016 enabled over 230 7th and 8th graders and 45 staff members at McClure to read a book by New York Times best selling author Joelle Charbonneau as a community. The students then demonstrated what they learned through a book review of their choice (e.g. written report, book trailer, etc.) and had the opportunity to share their learnings with Ms. Charbonneau when she visited McClure in September.
“To be able to have an author come to our school and also be able to put one of her books into each of our kids’ hands is something we could not have done without WSFEE.”
— Gita Denning, Librarian at McClure Junior High
