City of East Lansing, MSU Announce 2018 One Book, One Community Selection

Supreme Court of the United States Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor to Visit East Lansing-MSU Community in August 2018


The City of East Lansing and Michigan State University announce the book selection for the 2018 One Book, One Community program: “My Beloved World,” a memoir by Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Supreme Court of the United States.

Sotomayor’s story is one of determination and the hope, tenacity, hard work and self-reliance that would propel a little girl who grew up in a Puerto Rican corner of the Bronx to the highest court in the land. In “My Beloved World,” Sotomayor provides readers with a frank and loving account of her coming of age and her large extended family, many with roots still in Puerto Rico. Sotomayor also recounts the adversity she has faced in her life – from growing up in poverty with an at-times challenging family life to her lifelong management of juvenile diabetes and her determination to adapt to a wider world that would eventually result in her becoming the first Latina and third woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Sotomayor’s retelling of her exuberant, colorful and close-knit family is reminiscent of many first and second generation immigrants, who rely on each other as they adapt to a new world. Always personal and intimate, her story is that of the importance of family and the determined reach for participation in the American dream. Sotomayor’s story gives us insight into her passage into the heady and, to her, often strange world of academia and later the practice of law.

A foretelling of her grit and tenacity, Sotomayor learned to give herself insulin shots at the tender age of seven when she was first diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. It was those characteristics of grit and tenacity that later carried her from being named valedictorian of her high school to graduating with honors from Princeton University and serving as an editor of the Yale Law Journal at Yale Law School. Sotomayor says, “Experience has taught me that you cannot value dreams according to the odds of their coming true.”

About OBOC Signature Events
As part of the 2018 OBOC program, Justice Sotomayor will visit the East Lansing-MSU community in August 2018. Community members are invited to the OBOC Kick-off Event: An Evening with Justice Sotomayor on Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018 at 6 p.m. at the East Lansing High School Theater, 509 Burcham Drive. Justice Sotomayor will also speak during the MSU Academic Welcome at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center, 534 Birch Road, on Monday Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. Both events are FREE and open to all community members.

The One Book, One Community program encourages the East Lansing-Michigan State University community to read the same book and come together to explore its themes and issues at a variety of campus and community events each fall. The selected book is widely read on and off campus and is a required reading for all incoming freshmen. The highlight of the program is the visit by the author(s) to the community in the fall. OBOC is one of the first community reading programs to bring together the students of a major university and the residents of its surrounding community. Learn more about OBOC and the 2018 program at www.onebookeastlansing.com.

Dear Friends of the East Lansing Educational Foundation:

Through wind, rain, and snow a dedicated team of community volunteers meets on the second Tuesday of each month with one ultimate goal in mind; to help raise funds to distribute to East Lansing Public Schools teachers, administrators and staff.

It has been my pleasure over the past few years to be a part of this team, better known as the East Lansing Educational Foundation, and to help raise those funds and to assist in reviewing the requests for assistance for our classrooms that come in each fall. From your donations, the ELEF was able to fund grants this year totaling over $48,000. I wanted to share just a few of those wonderful requests that were awarded this year.


East Lansing High School
$1,058.00 for two new cameras for the yearbook staff
$3,939.90 for mini iPads for the Math Department

MacDonald Middle School
$3,500.00 for a new 3-D printer

Donley
$4,760.00 for a science partnership with Impression 5 Science Center

Glencairn

Pinecrest

As you can see, students at every school in our district benefit from your generous support to the ELEF. As we enter the season of giving, I humbly ask that you once again open your hearts and your checkbooks to assist the ELEF in its mission to continue to provide that extra support our ELPS teachers, administrators, and staff so deservingly need. We all benefit from this generosity of spirit and our community is a much richer place for it. Please fill out the enclosed donation form or visit us online at: www.elef.us to contribute to the ELEF in whatever amount you can spare. All donations are extremely appreciated.

Have a safe and happy holiday season,

East Lansing Educational Foundation Presents Sarah Tarpoff Creative Writing Award Winning Stories

History of the Sarah Tarpoff Creative Writing Award

The Sarah Tarpoff Creative Writing Award began in the spring of 1985 as a memorial to a young East Lansing girl named Sarah Beth Tarpoff.  She was a student at the now closed Bailey School when she died in a horse-back riding accident.  This accident occurred at the same time the school was closing.  As a result, the school’s Parent Teacher Organization decided to combine the remaining PTO assets with monies given to the Tarpoff family in Sarah’s memory to begin a writing award and a new education foundation that has become the East Lansing Educational Foundation! 

An accomplished rider, Sarah loved horses more than anything.  She also loved to write and draw, so this award program was created in her name to foster and encourage other children to express themselves through writing and drawing.

For over thirty years the Sarah Tarpoff Creative Writing Project has been open to all students in East Lansing Public Schools, from kindergarten to high school seniors, who submit an original poem, story or essay no longer than 1,000 words. Each manuscript is read and evaluated by high school students in Honors English, under the direction of their teacher, to evaluate and judge submissions. Everyone who enters receives a ribbon honoring their participation. In addition, all students, Kindergarten through grade 12, may also receive first, second, third, or honorable mention ribbons.

For many years the Creative Writing Award was organized and run by Sarah’s family, with the help of many others dedicated to encouraging the language arts.  It then transitioned into an East Lansing Educational Foundation sponsored program, retaining the core mission of encouraging creative writing within the East Lansing community and school district. First place entries are published, with parental permission, on the East Lansing Educational Foundation website and linked to the East Lansing Public Schools website.

The 2016-2017 school year 1st Prize Award-winning entries will be showcased and published on the East Lansing Educational Foundation (www.elef.us) and the East Lansing Public Schools websites following the schedule below:
 

  • February and March           Donley and Marble Elementary Schools
  • March and April                     Glencairn and Whitehills Elementary Schools
  • May and June                          MacDonald Middle School

The Sarah Tarpoff Writing Project will kick off this year in mid-February 2018.  This year’s deadline for submissions for the Sarah Tarpoff Writing project is Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

If you student receives a 1st Place Award-winning entry for the 2017-2018 school year and you want your student’s works published on the ELPS and ELEF websites watch for additional information with your student’s work when you receive them back in June 2018.

 

 

East Lansing Public Library

ELPL Raising Funds to Bring Pop-Up Library to East Lansing
 

The East Lansing Public Library (ELPL) is continuing to raise funds to bring a Pop-Up Library to East Lansing.

Pop-Up Libraries are low-speed, electric vehicles specially customized to transport and display library materials. Bringing a Pop-Up Library to East Lansing will provide ELPL with the opportunity to extend its reach outside of the library walls at special community events and destinations throughout the City.

“The vehicle will allow us to get out in the community and share what we have to offer at places like the East Lansing Farmer’s Market, the East Lansing Family Aquatic Center, schools, senior communities, area festivals and more,” said ELPL Director Kristin Shelley. “Community engagement is such an important part of what we do and we believe this vehicle will make a huge difference in how we better reach the people living in our community.”

This past April, ELPL raised more than $20,000 at its annual Books, Bites & Bids fundraising event for the Pop-Up Library. It was a record amount for the annual event, but a little more than half of the funds still need to be raised to make the Pop-Up Library a reality. With that in mind, community members interested in supporting the fundraising effort can donate a “part” to the library. Community members can give a lugnut for $25, a gas pedal for $150 and/or a tire for $500. Donations of any amount are welcome!

Community members can learn more about supporting the Pop-Up Library at https://www.elpl.org/browse_program/pop-up-library/ or by calling ELPL at (517) 351-2420.
