There has been so much happening since the last post. Here is a rundown:
We had a Scholastic Book Fair! We sold approximately $5000 worth of items which meant we received over $2000 from Scholastic to use toward purchasing books for our library and for the classrooms.
We had a Box Tops contest and raised over $800 for books for the library!
We had another successful Community Night at In Good Company with over $600 in donations.
We had an author visit with our students! Miriam Jones Bradley had lunch with about 20 of our active library students and it was such a treasure for them to ask her questions about being an author.
We received over 2000 books, graphic novels, from a family at Parkside!
We received a check for $10,939 from the Kiwanis Club of Jackson which will be used to purchase 30 tablets, comfortable seating and display cases.
A contract for 3 years has been signed by Jackson Public Schools and the Jackson District Library to secure our librarian. This is very significant!
We continued to serve the students at Parkside and we have been adding to the collection nearly every single day.
Look for more to come!
