SSS Buys Books for High School Classes

May 17, 2013

Student Support Services staff contribute to a Jeans Day Fund each year. The proceeds are used for unfunded needs within the district. Earlier this year, the proceeds went toward purchasing cab vouchers for Child Find parents in need of transportation to meetings. More recently, the ILT team accompanied high school special education teachers to the Scholastic Book event and purchased over $300 worth of books for their Complete Reading programs. Linda Murphy set up the buying program and Tracy Gordon worked along side the teachers during the event. The students and teachers were very excited to receive the numerous books!

With the remaining money from the Jeans Day Fund we will purchase cab vouchers for next school year, to be used by families in need of transportation to IEP meetings at all building levels.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the Jeans Day Fund which enables us to make a positive difference for our students and families!
