About Hirsch Academy
Hirsch Academy CFA was established in 2013 at the Paiute Neighborhood Center in South Scottsdale. The public charter school houses 185 students in grades K-6. 100% of Hirsch Academy students are eligible for free and reduced lunch under the National School Lunch Program. 94% of Hirsch students come from Hispanic families in a low-income community. Many of the student families live within a 1-2 block radius of the school in low income housing units, lacking transportation and basic social services.

I love reading because there is no limit to what you can read about. My favorite book series is a Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. I wanted to join Loving Library because I love helping people and spreading kindness.
Deven is 9 years old and in 4th grade. He likes to read, spend time with family and play Roblox. He also loves to play sports and be creative with art. He is a part of this Chapter because he likes doing nice things for others and it makes him happy to do so.
I love to read because it takes me on so many adventures.
Samuel is 9 years old and in 4th grade. He loves to read books and play tennis. He wants to be a part of Loving Library because he believes that everyone should be able to read and get what they need.
Reading is a good way to learn speech, deliver your thoughts to other people, and pass the time while having fun. I believe that Loving Library is a special movement to help other people and enjoy charity.
Jovin is 9 years old and in 4th grade. He is happiest when he is sharing with others, reading, listening to music or writing rap songs.
The more you give the happier you are. Sharing the gift of books to kids in need makes me the happiest.
Anna is 7 years old and in 1st grade. She likes to read, play outside and ride her skateboard. She is excited to be a Loving Library Ambassador because she loves to read and would like to help those in need.
Reading is like an airplane that takes you to a whole other world of stories. I think everyone should be able to read because reading is fun and I think everyone should have that opportunity.
