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.
Nonfiction books about animals
Dog Man series
Wings of Fire series
Robert Munsch books

Pearson has been my home for almost 9 years. The kids are amazing, the staff is amazing. The kids are hungry to learn, but we don’t always have the resources to support their interests and reading levels. We need more resources, so the kids can take control of their own learning. We want to ...
Pearson Road Elementary school is an amazing place to work, with a dedicated staff and a fantastic, diverse student population who are kind, caring and have a love of learning.
