Students Receive a New Book for Home

Students Receive a New Book for Home
Posted on 02/19/2021
books 1We are pleased to report that every USD 305 student in grades 3, 4 and 5 recently received a William Allen White book. The books were a portion of 17,000 that were ordered with special funds* to increase students’ access to books at home.

Members of the educational programs department team counted, sorted, and boxed 17,000 books.  Once the books were delivered to schools, students had the  opportunity to browse all the books.  Media specialists coordinated the distribution in each building and worked with teachers to get the books into students’ hands.  Discussion prompts were sent home with the books to encourage family conversations.  

Thank you to everyone who supported this project that will help students practice their reading skills and build their love of reading.
