Eiland Students Receive Books for Summer Reading
Donation from local church makes reading at home easier
Mentors and volunteers from St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church recently donated books to the students at Eiland Elementary to continue to encourage them to read over the summer.
“Reading is vital to a child’s success,” said Eiland mentor and St. Dunstan’s member Lynne Dozier. “If we can do this one thing to encourage them to read at home to themselves, to their siblings, their parents, then it was all worth it.”
During the school’s book fair, books were purchased on the buy
one get one free day that allowed every kindergarten through third-grade student to receive three books and every fourth and fifth-grade student to receive two books. Also, Eiland earned enough Scholastic points that the school’s librarian, Ms. Scheller, will be able to purchase books for a special read-and-share program for kids as well as books for a staff study next year.
On Tuesday, May 29, 2018, St. Dunstan’s mentors and church members were able to bag the books and distribute them to students. The church members brought the books to campus and Eiland teachers were able to hand pick for their students.
“I truly believe that we have helped achieve the goals of building community, reimagine learning, and cultivating talent not only for EVERY student but for EVERY Eiland staff member,” said Dozier. “We are excited about the future and other projects the church and the mentoring program can support with time, talent, and treasure.”
