Spring Book Drive for Westerly Hills Academy

February 23, 2018

Sunday is the deadline to bring in books for the book drive for Westerly Hills Academy. More than 400 books have been donated so far and about 180 books are still needed to assure that each child is able to choose a book for their home library before spring break.

New and gently-used books for students in grades K-8 will be collected in bins in the hallway behind the sanctuary March 1-18. To make sure we’re contributing books that today’s students will enjoy and benefit from, teachers have provided four lists of suggested books.
