Thanksgiving Break 500-Minute Reading Challenge
2020 BOOK FAIR results
Thank you to all who ordered great books for your families through the online Book Fair! We are THRILLED that we were able to purchase books amounting to $2100 for our 42 Deerpark teachers who made classroom wishlists, $700 for the library, and $1000 for RRISD Summer Reading Pop-Up Libraries that service at-risk areas.
The money to purchase the books was made possible by the Hunger Games Readathon our Library hosted RIGHT before COVID 19 hit. We thank everyone...staff, students and parents... who supported Readathon this past spring. What a great memory!
