Primary and Intermediate Students to Receive Books For Their At-Home Library

Through the gracious support of Dollar General, Spring Hill ISD has the opportunity to partner with Reading is Fundamental's Books for Ownership Program this school year. With this program, every student in Pre-K through fifth grade will have the opportunity to select three books to add to his or her at-home library.

"By providing books to students, Reading Is Fundamental is creating a gateway to the world by opening doors to new ideas and places while increasing literacy in our community," said Jena Wayt, librarian. “Our hope is that students will select new, age-appropriate books that they will read over and over again, thus making them more motivated and engaged readers.”

An online bookstore is available for students. While books cannot be ordered from the online bookstore, the store lists every book title available to Spring Hill Primary and Intermediate students. Students can select three books they would like to receive by submitting a book selection form. Selection forms should be completed by Friday, December 10.

Login Information for the bookstore and links to the book selection forms are below. Contact Jena Wayt at 903-323-7848 with questions.
