Thanks to your generosity the last two years, each student at Westerly Hills Academy went home for the holidays with books to add to their home libraries. Again this year we will stage a free book fair at Westerly Hills Academy on Thursday, December 19, where students may choose three books to take home and read over winter break.
Studies have shown that children who choose their own books are more engaged in what they are reading, read more for pleasure and ultimately perform better in school as a result.
Sign up here to help out. Contribute on Sunday mornings, November 24 through December 15, to purchase books. Or participate on #CyberMonday, December 2, using a link on the Now@First page. FPC can purchase books at a deep discount through a partnership with Scholastic, so your financial contribution maximizes our purchasing power.
