The fifth grade is again collecting books for the East Bay Children's Book Project. Their mission: "The East Bay Children’s Book Project helps build literacy by putting books into the hands of children who have little or no access to them. Working through individuals and organizations who help children in need, we have given out more than a million free books since opening our doors in May 2005."
Last year the Hillcrest donation drive was a great success with many thousands of books donated. Please consider donating new and gently used books for all ages. Board books for babies and toddlers are especially welcome.
Collection bins will be in Ms Weinberg's room and just inside the main entrance doors to the school from Friday, March 17th through Thursday, March 30th. They can also be left at our front door - 101 Alta Road. If there are any questions please email me, Monika Stevens, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
