Principal Rob Zoppi Literacy is one of our school goals and we definitely need to update our collection of books in the library. Over 20% of our students are English Language Learners and we have more refugee families in our school community than any other elementary school in our district. We host an everyday after school reading club where staff members from our school volunteer to read with our students and we spend a large portion of our day teaching reading and writing. However, we have a small budget for our library and a very dated collection of books. We do host a Scholastic Book Fair once a year, but that is our only extra source of funding so we need help to purchase new books.
