Thanks to PAG!
Thank you for your continuing support of our effort to put books into kids' hands through the mini-libraries in every classroom. Teachers are so excited to be able to select and order books that they want to share with students! Selections have ranged from books connected with expeditions to works by teachers' favorite authors.

Students can find books about free speech and the struggles of revolution in Mr. Ford's room or books of math puzzles in Ms. Natarajan's. Or they can read about inspirational leaders of STEM in Ms. Teller's and Ms. Loughlin's rooms.

Thanks to your generous grants this year and last, there are books in nearly every room, giving students access to reading materials at a wide range of levels and in diverse areas of interest. Promoting reading at a recreational level is one of the best ways we can help students improve their literacy.
