Mrs. Chadwick and I dropped off our books at the Wake Up and Read program warehouse. The organizers were so delighted with our donation. In fact, our donation of 2100 books puts them over the 50,000 book mark!
Several members of the Swift Creek Service Club, their parents, Mrs. Hizer, Mrs Chadwick, and Mrs. Mailhot spent the morning sorting the books. Our students were taking their work so seriously and were so dedicated! At th...e end of our 3 hour session, the organizers told us that all the volunteers during that time period had sorted 12,000 books!
Next the books are taken to the elementary schools where they are laid out like a Book Fair. Children will be able to select 10 books of their very own and take them home to keep. Some of the elementary schools that will receive these books are Fox and Creech.
