Congratulations to Mrs. Sara Henderson for receiving a grant through First Book!

First Book organizes the distribution of overstock books that publishers would otherwise destroy. First Book offers teachers a marketplace where they can order these books at low prices online and pay shipping. The organization also occasionally coordinates book drops in cities that provide volunteers and warehouse space. Tucson was chosen as a book-drop site, and teachers in the area were given the opportunity to apply to receive books. Teachers were asked how many books they would be interested in for their sites and how they would use the books. Mrs. Henderson applied for books leveled Pre-K-8th grade and stated that we would use them for a variety of purposes, including as holiday gifts for students, in small groups within the classrooms, and as items that students could buy with their PBIS Phoenix Bucks.

We received a grant for 4,000 books, and that amounted to 125 boxes! Our students and teachers have already started taking advantage of these extra gifts for the season.
