The end of the school year brings field trips, desk cleaning, parties and free books. The April Need of the Month is Books for Kids. We are collecting new or gently used children’s books for Alice Smith students. The books should be clean and appropriate for ages 5-12. Teachers decide how many books individual children can choose. It’s a joy to watch the children make selections and proudly carry them home. Help to encourage summer reading and family together time by donating books this April. Financial donations can be made using the pew envelopes. Any checks should be made to Gethsemane with “April Book Need” on the memo line.
