Authoring their own story
Posted Friday, January 9, 2015
It was one unique learning experience.
Not only did the Loveland Middle School (LMS) students in Rachel Silvey’s language arts class collect books to donate to a local nonprofit – but one of the students also authored a story to share with the Tiger Family detailing the experience.

Great job, Katlyn!
LMS Students Team Up with Adopt-a-Book
By Katlyn Kramer, Seventh Grade LMS Student
Loveland Middle School students collected over 620 gently used books for their December book drive. The students teamed up with a local organization, Adopt-a-Book, and walked the bags of books over to Northstar Church on Friday, Dec. 12.
Rachel Silvey’s three language arts classes worked for two weeks to collect the donated books for the drive. The collected books were used at the Northstar Care Center allowing local families to choose books to gift for the recent holiday season.
An LMS student, named Kate Garry, generously donated over 50 books. Kate was asked how she felt about her donation to the book drive and she replied, “I feel good about doing this for kids that love to read books, but can’t always afford the ones that they want to read.”
