Regardless of whether you participate, we request that you return your plastic bag to your teacher so that we can be as green as possible and reuse them each year.

The money raised for All for Books will be used at the upcoming book fair to buy books for students at Central School needing assistance. Additional monies will be used to donate brand new books to the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. AND, Scholastic matches the funds we raise and donates books to the Kids in Distressed Situations Inc and the Kids in Need Foundation!
