Ellendale Elementary

Surrey , British Columbia 601 / 137 Books Given

Principal Rabinder Bains Ellendale Elementary is a small school in an amazing community in north Surrey. Over the past few years our fundraising efforts have mostly been focused on obtaining the funds for a badly needed new playground. Now that have finally succeeded in securing these funds, we are turning our efforts to our school library. Most of our books are over 10 years old, and our children regularly come home with ripped and taped-together books. Recently, our school librarian - who is available to us only twice a week - cleaned out some of the books that were worse for wear and our shelves now seem a lot emptier. Because our school is so small, it is harder to bring in the funds a larger school would hosting a similar fundraiser. The students would benefit so much from any bit of help we can give them, and our library has been ignored for too long. It’s time to enrich and revitalize!
