Each year at the Willow Road School, students receive a special gift from the PTA, whose members visit to distribute new books. Through a partnership with the Scholastic Literacy Program, Be Excited About Reading (B.E.A.R.), each student is able to select a new book to take home as a gift from the PTA.
On Sept. 27, the library was filled with students eager to choose a book and make it their own. Thank you to PTA representatives, Denise Cona and Christine Balsan for coordinating this event and to librarian Carole Anne Weik for teaching the children the importance of reading.
