Sun Valley Elementary School Collects Books for Classroom Libraries
Sun Valley Elementary School has started a reading campaign that involves collecting new and used books for classroom libraries. Many new teachers to the school simply don’t have enough reading materials to support a literature rich environment and are filling the gap with materials from the county’s public library.
Luke Valentine in Zvi Vines’s 2nd grade class said, “I brought in books to help them learn about different fun stuff.”
