East Side’s Schoolwide

Reading Initiative

Each year, the faculty of East Side Elementary School selects a text to serve as the center of the school-wide reading initiative. We are pleased to announce that this year’s text is Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story by Gregg Lewis and Deborah Shaw Lewis.   This true story details Dr. Carson’s journey from “the back of the class to brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon.” This book vividly demonstrates the powerful effect education can have on one’s dreams.  We are excited to share this reading experience with our students and to learn about their dreams for bright, successful futures—built on the foundation of their education here at Haywood County Schools!Ben Carson Story pic
