Building Libraries for Student Success

Over the summer, the first-grade teachers at J. Andrew Morrow Primary School asked members of the community to sponsor students in their classes with a monetary donation of $10 per student. The community responded with an overwhelming amount of support. With the donations received, each student will receive a book every month of the school year. By the end of the year, the students will have 10 brand new books to build a personal library, in which we hope will foster a love of learning. Students and teachers would like to send out a huge thank you to everyone who contributed and allowed this to be such a big success.
