Birthday Book Club

The Birthday Book Club is a donation program which allows participants to give our school community the gift of reading.  When you donate, a book is purchased in your child's name and added to our library collection. You can make a donation of $15 for me to purchase a book, or you can choose a book from our Amazon Wish List and send the book to school. 

You can find more information and a donation form HERE.
