Summer Reading!

Can you believe it? We’re already planning for summer. We would love some help in gathering books — new or gently loved — to gift to our School Based Enrichment Program scholars for their summer reading. Many of these fourth and fifth graders do not have books at home, and so their skills can drop dramatically over the break from daily learning.

Do you have any of these on hand? Would you pick up a few extra copies next time you’re at the bookstore, or order a few online? Please contact Seth Barnett if so!
