JG Book Drive is ON! 📕
Time to make some good buys so you can kiss your competition good-bye! Our 2nd annual JG Book Drive is now in full swing and you have until April 30th to purchase books from your class’s wish list. Not only do you have the opportunity to buy books for our school library, your child’s class will reap the benefits of having the books your teacher has hand-picked for their level of learning. If that’s not enough motivation, how about a celebratory pizza party with drinks, food and a private patio all included at TOSS Pizzeria courtesy of Julia’s Garden? Contact your house mama for how to contribute and may the best house win!
