Narrative, Informative Narrative, and Informational Books Are Such a Help
Thanks to our Foundation, I have received many books to teach comprehension. My personal library was pretty sparse when I entered the district 7 years ago. These books have helped my students gain outstanding scores in reading. Many thanks to the Foundation!
The Kane Schools Foundation is constantly seeking ways to support students and professionals within the district. They purchase supplies, provide grants for classroom improvement, offer student scholarships, and have a presence in the classroom. I feel validated and supported as a teacher by the foundation.
I had a need for young adult/low level reading books for our school library. It was important to me that the books were not easily identified by the cover as low level. I located a series of books that would work for us, but needed funding. I contacted Kane School Foundation and they were able to purchase the books. These books are consistently checked out because of their high interest and students are telling each other about them. Students who started on levels two and three are progressing to level four. I appreciate this organizations support.
Despite being such a small, rural community we feel we have one of the best districts in the state of Utah. Kane Schools Foundation for Students works hard every year to ensure our community and school district are doing what it takes to provide an excellent education for our students. I'm particularly impressed by the level of community support KSFS receives at their annual fundraising auction. Some of the items last year included a house boat trip on Lake Powell, original artwork, even accomodations for a weeklong stay at a French Chateau...
