WBMS October Book Drive-Literacy Focus

Hello WBMS parents and guardians-

After a very successful ukulele drive last year, the PTA Mini Grant committee is asking for your help to purchase a number of books for our school. The school's Strategic Plan has a focus on literacy and having enough books in the school is vital to meet this goal.

Ms Boltz and the other ELA teachers would like to stock their personal classrooms with high interest novels to provide a variety of different books requested by our students. Our teachers have allocated time during their classes and each Monday in Compass to be for "reading only" where students are reading books and off their electronic devices.  As Ms Boltz explains in her grant proposal-"We want to give our students an opportunity to read for pleasure-reading a book they have read before, reading the same book as a friend, reading a book to try it out. It's an incredibly powerful time that we spend reading and sharing a culture of literacy."

If you have any gently used books that you want to donate, or you would like to help by purchasing a gift card or one of the requested book titles below, please sign up below and bring any books or gift cards to the front office by November 16th. Amazon links have been provided to copy and paste if you like to shop using Amazon Prime and get free shipping. 

There are also different used book websites such as thriftbooks.com and bookdepository.com that have also been recommended as great places to buy gently used books. The annual WBMS book fair is coming Oct 24-Nov 2 so look for details in Friday Notes. We will see if any of the below titles will be available for purchase at the book fair. 

If you have any questions, please email Sue Moore at [email protected]
