Book Drive for Louisiana School

This summer there was an epic flood in the state of Louisiana.  Communities are still dealing with the impact including re-establishing normal school experiences for children.  This even includes reading!  As a community that has experienced similar challenges, we recognize a call to action.  Our school was helped during our time of need by communities around the country.  We now want to pay this kindness forward to the residents of St Amant, Louisiana.  Moretown School has joined Bear Pond Books in an effort to restock the bookshelves of the St. Amant Primary School.

We are helping by collecting New or Like New books for grades PreK-5.  Both fiction and non-fiction will be accepted but teachers are especially looking for quality non-fiction titles with these themes:

Scientific method
Stem activities
Circulatory and respiratory body function
Solar System
Food web
US political symbol
Westward expansion
United States Geography
Maps and globes
US Constitution
Declaration of Independence
Bill of Rights
Three branches of government
Economics for kids

Bear Pond Books is offering a 20% discount on all books donated to the cause.  Please visit the store in Montpelier or visit them online here:  (Please note "book drive" in the comments section of the online check out).  All books can be brought in to the school to put in our book drive boxes.  The book drive will take place Sept 19 - Oct 2nd.
