This year O'Fallon Kiwanis Club members donated $600 in books from Scholastic Books to J.L. Mudd Elementary School. Scholastic is one of our partner organizations who offer books at a discount through their (FACE) Family & Community Engagement Book Distribution Program. The books are for the school staff to give away to children throughout the year, especially to those who might not have books at home to read. We are hoping to make this a yearly project to enable school staff to encourage reading and literacy among families.
We met with Principal, Dr. Stephanie Mountain and Reading Specialist, Tracy Hall to present the books to them in November 2016.
