The Gilbert 4th grade reading council sponsored a book drive an received over 900 books for their book! These books were donated to the Kindergarten students at Moulton Elementary School in Des Moines. The students divided into three committees; advertisement, design, and collection. The advertisement committee made posters and created announcements telling the community about the book drive; students in the design committee decorated canvas tote bags to be used by the Kindergartners as “book bags.” The collection committee put the book bags, a book mark, and books together along with a little bag of fruit snacks. The fourth grade class then made a field trip down to Moulton Elementary and delivered the book bags to the Kindergartners. We truly have a wonderful district that is so willing to give to other communities!
