Book Drive

During the month of April at GSES, Girl Scout Troop 31269 will be hosting a book drive at Greystone Elementary. We are using cookie profits to help  S.T.A.I.R. of Birmingham, which tutors 2nd graders in Birmingham City Schools, in hopes of changing the staggering statistic that 80% of 3rd graders in Birmingham City Schools CANNOT READ.

As you know, children are learning to read through 2nd grade; after 3rd grade they are reading to learn. So to have 80% of kids just a few miles from us unable to do so is setting our community up for a challenging future - Troop 31269 would like to head that challenge off at the pass by collecting used level 1 & 2 books from students at Greystone in the month of April, with a goal of presenting these to S.T.A.I.R. of Birmingham. Many of the schools they serve are lacking a library for this program.

If you would like to donate some of your gently used books, we will be collecting books in the front of the school. Thank you for helping our Troop reach our goals of community service and helping others!
