Gently Used Book Drive - Hey Jaguar Families! While we are waiting for our licensing application to be approved for our Pre-K program for this next school year, our student council would love to help inspire a love of reading in our future Jags by hosting a book drive. Beginning Tuesday, February 20 - Wednesday, March 15, we will be collecting new and gently used books in bins at both entrances. Some examples of books we are collecting include Pete the Cat, Clifford, Dr. Suess, Eric Carle, any picture books, traditional and new versions of fairy tales, any early learning (i.e. B says, book, ball, basketball), any real animal books, board books, and books with repetition and rhyming. Thank you for supporting our future Pre-K!
