Letters from Students

From Joann Barry, Librarian, Gallistel Language Academy

I cannot thank you enough for the generous donation you made to Gallistel Language Academy’s library for the kindergarten through fourth grades! The students could not have been more excited to get these books. I couldn’t get them out of the boxes and catalogued fast enough. The multiple copies of Dr. Seuss books are very useful for small reading groups while in library. Our third and fourth graders were so excited to get new fiction books to read and share with one another.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Joann Barry, Librarian, Gallistel Language Academy

From Kandace Weber at Pilsen Community Academy

Pilsen Community Academy would like to give a big thanks to Rock for Reading and your generous book donation. Many of the books are currently being cataloged and processed for the school library, making them available to the entire school community. The rest of the books are going to teachers for their classroom libraries. We plan to distribute the remaining copies to students during our Family Literacy Night. Thanks to you, students are already enjoying the wide selection of fiction and nonfiction books. The younger students are really excited about the new, complete collection of Dr. Seuss books, while the older students are devouring the range of fiction chapter books and non-fiction titles. We cannot begin to thank you enough for the awesome reading opportunities you have given the Pilsen Community Academy community!!

THANK YOU!! Kandace Weber Teacher Librarian Pilsen Community Academy
