One thing we have heard loud and clear from teachers is that they need high quality books for their classrooms. With our work with the Jefferson Success Pathway and the goal of seeing 3rd grade reading scores increase among area students, this is a need we would love to see met.
So this Friday we are hosting a Jefferson Area Teacher Reception for teachers at Edgewater, Lumberg, Molholm and Jefferson Jr/Sr High School. From 3:30-5 pm teachers can stop by our office at 5220 West 25th Avenue to pick up free books for their classroom. Thanks to Joyride Brewing Company and other local businesses, we are also providing free, delicious food and drink.
Thanks to a generous donor, we already have fifteen boxes of high quality books ready for teachers to pick up. We also ordered new books from Scholastic including books in Spanish for the dual language classrooms.
We are accepting high quality books for children kindergarten through 12th grade. You can drop them off before 3 pm on Friday. If we aren’t at the office to accept them, you can pass them through our mail slot at the front door.
