Principal's Book of the Month

Each month, we select a text for the whole school community to read. Books of the Month highlight our Heritage Focus, Cougar Habits, and more.

Book cover of Firebird. Ballerina leaping in the air.

Written by: Misty Copeland
Illustrated by: Christopher Myers

In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl--an every girl--whose confidence is fragile and who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Misty has reached. Misty encourages this young girl's faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird.
