SJ Boys Read! collected over 1,400 books through their annual book drive in October. UrbanPromise Academy high school English teacher, Hillary Jones, was thrilled to the point of jumping up and down with excitement to be able to fill her classroom library with new selections for her students.
Ms. Jones said that she normally has 20 books checked out of the classroom library at a time. With the flood of new titles, she has an unprecedented 70 books checked out this week!
All of the staff and students of UrbanPromise would like to extend a sincere thank you to SJ Boys Read! and all those who donated books! We are grateful for your hard work and dedication to promote reading among your peers.
