Book Drive

Let’s help some local Girl Scouts with their Book Drive! FISD students Kaelyn Bannister, Maegan Kaderka, & Apurva Nair and working on their Silver Award through Girl Scouts. A Silver Award is the second service project award in a sequence of 3. It requires a sustainable project that helps the local community. Their group has decided to create a Lending Library for the Frisco Family Service Summer Lunch Program. This program reaches students and families in Frisco ISD along with others. They plan to provide books for the children at least once a week. Because this is a service project, they are looking for book donations. Books need to be targeted toward younger kids, and may be new or gently used.

If you are able to donate new or gently used books (geared toward younger children), please send them in with your child by May 20, or drop them off to Mrs. Howell.

Kaelyn, Maegan, & Apurva appreciate your support and help!
