Good morning Castor Valley !
Last month we launched our Library Project in an effort to raise funds for enhancing our technology and literacy needs at the school. A library should be a hub of learning and we’re excited to see how we can improve the space!
During Phase One of the project, we’re asking parents to help by:
- buying e-cards from Chapters-Indigo on Flipgive. We receive 20% back to spend on books for our library. So far, we’ve raised $120. E-cards are immediately available to use online or in-store (from a phone or printed off).
- take an ornament from our Library Wishing Tree. If you’re in the school, check out our Wishing Tree. Take an ornament of your choosing and purchase the book listed on the ornament to donate back to the library. You will have your name mentioned on the paper bookplate on the inside cover of the book AND get a thank you on our website (ask for anonymity if you’d prefer).
- donate a book on our bi-monthly librarian curated wish lists. Our librarian will have a list of books sent out to the school community in a CVES newsletter every other week. The list will be posted here on a new blog post as well as added to our wishlist page. Send us a quick email if you purchase a book so we can update our site to avoid duplication of donations. You will have your name mentioned on the paper bookplate on the inside cover of the book AND get a thank you on our website (ask for anonymity if you’d prefer).
If you purchase your donation from Chapters, please consider paying with a Flipgive e-card!!!
