The White City Community Improvement Association contributed $5,000 to White City Elementary to support their school-wide mission of getting books into the hands and homes of our students. Each of the 470 students chose two, high-quality children’s literature books from the buy-one-get-one-free Scholastic Book Fair held in the W.C.E. library May 27-June 3. Additionally, 23 students that achieved the standard of “perfect attendance” (zero absences and zero tardy) for the 08-09 school year, were able to select $100 worth of children’s literature books to recognize this outstanding accomplishment.
Through the support of White City Community Improvement Association and White City Charitable Foundation, we have been able to place $7,500 worth of great children’s books into the hands and homes of our students this school year.
