“There is only one you in this great big world. Make it a better place.” This is a quote from a very special story, “Only One You” by Linda Kranz, that has inspired a wonderful project that needs your help.
We are starting a new fundraiser to get a Book Vending Machine at Pioneer Elementary School for all of the students of the district! Not only will this vending machine bring back the excitement of reading to the students, but it will also encourage them to practice good citizenship. Students will be earning points for showing good citizenship, and once a week our principal will be drawing a few names to choose their very own special book from the vending machine.
. We have raised about 50% of the cost of the machine, and just need a little more help!! After obtaining the necessary funds, it takes about 4-6 weeks for the machine to be delivered. We will also be hosting an event that will raise money for the books that will be going into the machine. And you are invited to join us. At this event we will be painting “fish” rocks for the “stream” that will be displayed in front of the school library. We are hoping to have the machine in place for a big reveal on the night of the event in February, and that it is up and running in early March during Read Across America.
Thank you in advance for your contribution! Every dollar helps us reach our goal!!
