This year, Deep Creek High School’s library will continue to promote the Virginia Readers’ Choice program, sponsor and enthusiastic book club, and provide a place for students to read and learn. Our mission is to meet each student where they are with reading and move them forward. We want all of our students to find the joy in reading.
Reading makes us better individuals and better citizens; there are things you can do to keep your teenagers reading or turn them into readers:
- Be a role model and read; it does not matter what you read as long as you do.
- Share what you are reading with the teenagers in your life.
- Encourage them to read.
- Talk to them about what they are reading.
- Make sure they have things to read such as newspapers, magazines, and books; take them to the library and/or bookstore.
- Remind them they have a great library at school that does not charge them overdue fines!
We are all reading teachers and reading role models. Please contact DCHS’s media specialists, Nikki Keegan or Darla Cline, if you have more questions about getting your student to read.
