Book Drive Update

Book Drive Update
Posted on 05/01/2017
Thank you to our Whittier community who made our Spring Book Drive to benefit students at Bailey Gatzert Elementary, a huge success.  Our goal was to collect ~700 books and this year we nearly doubled that quantity.  We collected many great titles from favorite authors like Mo Willems, Dav Pilkey, Raina Telgemeier and Rick Riordan.  

Whittier is a community of readers and we are proud to share our enthusiasm for books with the students at Bailey Gatzert to inspire their reading over spring break.   We delivered 750 books to Bailey Gatzert Elementary where each classroom had a pre-break party and every student selected two books to keep.  Donated books were also given to the Bailey Gatzert Library to lower student library fines by replacing books that had been lost.  We are also excited to use all our extra books to sponsor an additional book party for Gatzert students in late June to supply great reading material for the summer break.

Thank you for supporting and encouraging learning across our Seattle School community.
