🙌 Weekly Shout-Outs
DFHS Best Sellers Lit Night was lit! 🔥
Shoutout to Megan Estes and Dr. Verrilli for organizing and hosting DFHS’ first-ever “Best Sellers Lit Night” last night in the DFHS Library Commons! The students had a blast creating book-themed crafts, imbibing hot chocolate, meeting with experts in the fields of literacy and library science, discussing current best sellers, perusing the Book Fair, and choosing from a wide variety of free books for the taking. Hopefully, it was the beginning of an annual tradition!

Chick-fil-A Leader Academy and Book Buddies
On Wednesday 11/15, the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy and Book Buddies group visited Dutch Fork Elementary School. Every year Chick-fil-A donates over 1 million books to children in their local communities and CFA provided the DFHS Leader Academy with books for 160 children to distribute. Our student groups chose DFES to receive this year's donation of books. We visited the 4K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade classrooms, and brought along a very special guest - Foxy!!! The children were so excited to see Foxy and were very excited over their new bundle of books. Each student also had a handwritten note of encouragement from our DFHS students. Thank you for having CFALA and Book Buddies DFES!
