FHS Awarded a Reach Grant

Our Reach Grant will be used to supplement our independent reading collection. We are currently hosting English classes who wish to help our students choose books according to social, economic, cultural and political literacies. In the words of Alfred Tatum, the author of Reading for Their Life, it is necessary to “build students’ textual lineages in order to help them become resilient and find direction.” Our goal is to build our collection so our students will discover books that speak to them and become self learners. We will let you know when the new books arrive. If you have any titles you would like to suggest, fill out this form online.
