Ben Carson Reading Room  

Our Ben Carson Reading Room is open! 

Come by and see this amazing, new space for our students!


The Ben Carson Reading Project is the second initiative of the Carson Scholars Fund. The primary purpose of the program is to provide funding and support to local schools so that they can create a nurturing environment for children to feel safe and secure as they develop their reading skills. The Reading Project is dedicated to combating illiteracy and promoting leisure reading as a key to unlocking a child’s potential. Each room is filled with hundreds of books for students to explore from a variety of authors, topics, and genres. The Reading Room is decorated with attractive, eye-catching artwork based on Dr. Carson’s THINK BIG philosophy. The cozy environment encourages students and their families to come together to recognize the importance of reading. The Ben Carson Reading Project is seeing some amazing results.  Last year, students logged over 15 million minutes of independent reading in the Ben Carson Reading Rooms. The Ben Carson Reading Project nurtures the entire school and allows students to develop the skills necessary to become lifetime readers and learners.

Adopt-a-Book Donations to the Library  


Adopt-a-Book Program 


Adopt-a-Book is a simple, meaningful way to recognize various events and help our school library. Donors may purchase new, sturdy, library-bound books from our school library collection.  A special label will be placed in the book commemorating the event and the donor.  A letter will be sent to the person being recognized, if desired. The adopted book will be placed into circulation for our students to enjoy for many years to come!

 Give a gift that can be opened again and again!

Box Tops for Books! 


Don’t forget- Box Tops are Dimes in Disguise!


As you know, each Box Top is worth ten cents. Our school uses this money to purchase new library books and materials. Students can turn in their collection sheets with taped Box Tops or attach a plastic baggie with real coins (dimes, nickels, quarters)! Each child will receive a treat for turning in their completed collection sheet (with Box Tops and/or change) and Box Top credit towards their class competition. (Every 10 cents= 1 Box Top).

For our 1st submission on Nov. 1, we earned $509.30. Keep collecting!

Our next mail-in submission deadline will be Feb. 20.

Thank you for sending in your Box Tops and Dimes!
