Turning Dollars and Coins Into Books and Smiles!

Get ready to celebrate the love of reading with our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair! This year, one of our goals is to ensure as many children as possible receive books and have access to books. One of the ways we can do that is through the All for Books program. With your help, all of the money collected goes to purchasing more books for children in the Child Life Program (CLP) at Winthrop-University Hospital. Mr. Patten and Ms. Dennis' classes have been visiting these children in the hospital as part of their Participation in Government Service Learning Project. These students will hand deliver the books we buy directly to the patients.

Not only does your donation help our cause, but Scholastic Book Fairs will match monetary donations raised with a donation of up to one million books to two non-profit organizations dedicated to helping children, families, and teachers acquire books and educational resources - Kids In Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc.

Please take a moment to donate $1 or loose change in the bins in the school library. THANK YOU!
