Dozens of Ypsilanti High School and Middle School students will be treated to a special film opening next month thanks to a local fundraising campaign that exceeded expectations.


Students enrolled in the ACTech small learning community at Ypsilanti Community Middle School will be receiving free books in conjunction with World Book Night next month.

The 7th and 8th grad students will get copies of “Zora and Me” by Victoria Bond and T.R. Simon.

Debbie Swanson is Teacher Leader for ACTech.  She says the work done in the small learning community so far this school year has been so productive and positive that “the opportunity to place a book in each student’s hands will feel like a reward for their  focus and hard work.”
