When last month’s Book Buddies News went online, our annual Book Celebrations in the schools had concluded. But we didn’t yet have photos of the events. Here’s a taste of the proceedings.
The Spurs Sports & Entertainment generously gave us 400 backpack bags so the kids could more easily carry home the books they had selected. At Hirsch Elementary they had a choice of Spurs or Rampage bags, and business was brisk for both teams. They loved their backpacks!
At Lamar, some children found other ways to carry their new books.
But book selection was a serious business in all twenty schools.
All twenty Book Celebrations went off successfully, and 10,000 children in the San Antonio Independent School District can look ahead to a fun summer of reading. Thanks, Book Buddies friends, for your donations of books, time, and money. And thanks to the SAISD for giving us space for our operations.
