Toronto , Ontario 815 / 540 Books Given

Principal Patricia Greco Our kids are desperately in need of books as our school library has barely had any new books for over 20 years. The school has held an annual Scholastics book sale and we engage in various fundraising activities throughout the year to supplement our school budget and give our kids different learning tools and opportunities. The Scholastics book sale has been the only source of funding that has added books to our library.
Books are tools that open children’s imagination and introduce them to worlds beyond their realities. With much of our time consumed interfacing with screens that albeit may also help in children’s development they are predominantly used for entertainment where a child is a passive participant. A book engages a child, builds relationships between them and their parents when they engage in storytime, and helps children learn to care for communal property. New books will shape the minds of children currently attending our school and generations to come.
