Read all about it! Lester B. Pearson School has been adopted by the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation.
Money donated at the Saskatoon Indigo store or online before Oct. 6 will go toward purchasing books for students at a reduced cost, with each $10 donation representing one book. Supporters can also choose to buy a specific book for the school and see their contribution matched by Indigo.
The school's students and staff celebrate and promote the love of reading every day using a variety of activities, community organizations and reading programs. The books it receives through the sponsorship will build classroom libraries and provide students of all ages with a wealth of reading options.
"Literacy is a major focus for our school community. We are honoured to have a high population of EAL students who are eager to learn, but our school library and classroom libraries do not reflect the need of our growing numbers, and literacy needs."
The initial two weeks saw the school's Indigo partnership receive strong support. Already the donation that will come back to the school sits at more than 250 books, and the school is hoping to build on the momentum during the final two weeks of the campaign.
In-person donations can be made at the Indigo store located at The Centre mall. More information and links to support the school or purchase a book is also available here: https://www.loveofreading.org/school/1371/
