Did you know most of our school budgets do not allow for one book per child? "We are loving the books we received through the Adopt a School program. We still have more to pick up. Thanks for doing this. Our kids are the winners here." Principal John Clouthier, Armstrong Elementary School (2011 adopted school), Armstrong ON "What a fabulous program that you have offered!!! Our community really hopped on board and got involved. Books are invaluable BUT worth a great deal of money so we appreciate the reading material for our library so much." Teacher Cindy Arnott, Seven Persons School (2011 adopted school), Seven Persons AB
