Recycled Reading at Parklawn
Kudos to our Literacy team for sponsoring our “Recycled Reading” program that allowed students to bring in gently, used books from home to trade in for a new gently, used book(s). Even students that weren’t able to bring in a book were able to select new options, too. This was a fun opportunity to get new text into the hands of our students and didn’t involve any cost!
