Give 5 - Read 5

All MCS is participating in the NCDPI's push for students to get to take home 5 books for summer reading. We will begin taking donations of books for K-6 next week through the end of May. The idea is that we collect books and then allow students to "shop" for 5 books to take home and read during the summer. We will collect here as well as anywhere else we can think of? Think your church or other group might be willing to help us collect books? We'd love to have multiple collection sites in Pinehurst to provide our students with lots of awesome choices!
