Give to the Max Thank You!
Friday, November 18, 2016 11:00 AM

On behalf of the Lyndale School community, we would like to thank all of you who chose to donate to our 2016 Give to Max campaign! Thanks to your generosity we were able to raise over $4000 to strengthen our classroom libraries in grades 3, 4, and 5. In addition to the book collections that we sought to purchase initially, we will be exploring options that will provide all of our students with even more access and opportunities to interact with high interest books inside their classrooms. Thank you!

Funds raised on Give to the Max Day 2016 will be used to buy book collections as part of an effort to help strenghthen and expand classroom libraries in grades 3, 4, and 5.

As part of their efforts to foster a lifelong love of reading, our teachers use classroom libraries to provide students with ready access to authentic reading opportunities with a variety of engaging texts. Teachers often purchase books for classroom libraries using their own funds. Your donation would ensure that students in our classrooms have access to some of the most popular and engaging titles in young adult literature. These classroom libraries will be a wonderful addition to the already rich opportunities students have to interact with great books in our Media Center.

Ideally, we would like to purchase a total of 9 collections of 25 books each. To learn more about the collections, please use the links below:
