Principal Craig Pottie We want to participate in the Adopt a School program in order to provide materials for students to enrich their learning. Our school library does not have a yearly budget for for purchasing new books. The only way to obtain new books for students is through book fairs and other fundraisers, such as this program. It is important to have current up-to-date books in libraries so that we inspire children to read. Many families cannot afford to buy books so it is important that we provide them in our school library. This is a place where students can choose what they want to read for their enjoyment as well as obtain resources needed for a project. This program would enable us to put new books in the hands of our students. Thank you for the support!

The Harry Potter series was great to read when I was growing up. I enjoyed having a series that was brand new during my own childhood. It has now become an iconic series, movies, and memorabilia to be enjoyed for many generations to come.
