Next week, Beebe Early Childhood is participating in a coin drive to raise money for classroom libraries. The dates we will collect coins are Wednesday and Thursday, November 8th and 9th.
Wednesday - Pennies and Nickels Thursday - Dimes and Quarters
If you have loose coins hiding in your couch cushions, floor mats, in pants pockets or the bottom of your bag, put them to good use by giving students more access to books they'll want to read!
The donations will be used to purchase books for the teacher's classroom libraries. Each individual teacher will use the total amount raised by her class to purchase books at the Scholastic Book Fair.
In addition to buying books for your child's classroom libraries, the Scholastic Possible Fund matches every donation, up to $1 million in books, received through the program and distributes them to children in need through organizations such as Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. and Kids in Need Foundation.
So, it is a win-win opportunity! Please consider helping out this great cause by sending your loose change on the designated dates above.
