Do you have piles of books you don’t use? Books you want to get rid of but you don’t want to just throw in the trash? You can bring them to school and donate them to PALS from September 17-21!
You might be wondering, where do I take my books, what kind of books can I bring, or, who can I give my books to? Well no worries, because the answers to your questions are right here. During your lunch period, you can take your books with you, and the PALS will be in the cafeteria waiting for your books. PALS are looking for new or gently used children’s books that you don’t read anymore. Books like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games can still be brought. Another big question you might be asking yourself is, “Why are the PALS having a book drive?” Mrs. Rodriguez (PALS teacher) said, “We are having a book drive to donate to the H-E-B literacy program. H-E-B will donate books to children across San Antonio.” What is the H-E-B literacy program? “ It’s a community service project where H-E-B is helping to shape a child’s mind by encouraging to read to a child at least three times a week. H-E-B launched their literacy program collecting new or gently used books to give to children in need. H-E-B also hosts book reading events within their stores.” Said Mrs. Rodriguez.
The PALS want to thank you for supporting the H-E-B literacy program and for donating your books!
Mrs.Silvia tells the 8th Grade Girls Varsity Choir about stressing thier notes.
Region is a very challenging competition that requires you to learn three songs and then perform them for judges. Students from all over the district compete. This is an opportunity to learn new choir skills and become a better singer. Students work hard and practice a lotto do the best they can and make it for the honor of being in The All Region Choir.
