Good Deed: Fifth Grade Book Drive
March 30th, 2009
The Fifth Grade class, with the help of Mrs. Patel and Ms. Alderfer, participated in organizing and collecting new and slightly used books to donate to Philadelphia’s at-risk and underprivileged classrooms and school libraries. These books will make an important difference, encouraging young children and teenagers to read as well as enhancing their literary skills. Many Fifth Graders donated their own books, choosing from those they had outgrown or books they recently enjoyed. We are thankful to all the families who donated books.
