We are running a children’s book drive this month in the hopes of distributing children’s books to various places in the community (daycares, shelters, etc..) in the hopes of increasing a love of reading.

Staff can drop off any books in Ms. Aloisi’s classroom (M23), families interested in donating, similar to the coat drive, a box will be placed in the vestibule of the school for the community to drop off children’s books.

Thank you for all of your help in bringing books into our community!
