There’s nothing like a good book!
Serendipity School enjoyed a wonderful Celebrate Reading Week during the first week of March. Our school community read over 40,000 pages, in every genre! During this time, we also kicked off a book drive to benefit the Children’s Book Project of San Francisco. Thanks to generous donations from our school community, we were able to share hundreds of new and gently used books with the Children’s book Project, which supplies books and services to Bay Area children of all ages in order to promote literacy and the love of reading.
To find out more about the Children’s Book Project, visit http://www.childrensbookproject.org/donate/. You can further support this fabulous local charity by donating books, volunteering, and organizing a book drive. Your support can make a big difference in children’s lives, a fact that many teachers working in underfunded Bay Area schools can attest to.
This is my second visit to the Children’s Book Project. Thank you for providing a wonderful opportunity for me and fellow teachers to put engaging books in our students’ hands. Honestly, without you, my kids would have few books to read. Much appreciation from myself, the kids, and their families! Short story: I offered students a licorice whip or a book for a job well done. Kids chose the books!
