Mary’s Place has just opened a shelter for homeless woman, children and families in White Center. Lafayette and Genessee Hill Elementary’s librarians are teaming up to supply the new place with books!
Good Books to donate are:
- New / Gently used
- For children of any age (babies to high school age)
- Includes characters of different backgrounds
- In English, Spanish, Amharic or Tigrinya
Books can be dropped off at school from May 8th to May 19th. In lieu of books, Mary’s Place would also welcome financial donations which can be made at their website www.marysplace.seattle.org
Please contact your school librarian Linda Nakagawa for any questions.
Thank you for your support!
New Library books for classrooms have arrived! As you may know, all of our library books are coded by reading level (A,B,C, etc.). The school has purchased new classroom library book kits and is in need of volunteers to code the books – basically put the appropriate sticker on the binding. This is something that be done at home or at school. You can pick up a box of books, stickers and corresponding lists which indicate which level a particular book is and then bring it back in once you are done. Get the kids involved too!
If you are interested in taking a box of books home to code, please contact our Principal, Cindy Chaput at firstname.lastname@example.org.
