WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Lake Orion Community Schools is committed to supporting authentic literacy development. All K-8 classrooms use a Reader’s Workshop approach to reading instruction. We focus on student choice and independence. Our readers make important decisions about what they read and their books are matched with their abilities and interests. It is vitally important for all students to have a wide selection of appropriate books.
The average elementary student reads as many as two books a week. Each child reads approximately 80 books a year and that means each classroom reads at least 2,000 books! That number doubles for our younger readers. Our middle school readers read approximately 40 books a year! Each year, books wear out and need to be replaced. The bottom line . . . our schools always need more books. We hope you will be able to help us meet our goal of expanding the variety and volume of books in each classroom.
WHEN CAN WE DROP OFF BOOKS?
Drop-off will be available during school hours and during parent teacher conferences (elementary only).
Books can be dropped off beginning Monday, November 5. Donations will be accepted through Thursday, November 15.
WHERE CAN WE DROP OFF BOOKS?
All Lake Orion Community Schools are Accepting Book Donations!
WHAT KINDS OF BOOKS CAN BE DONATED?
A book is a book! Donated books can be new or gently used. They may be of any reading level, preschool through adult. A team of teachers will select books appropriate for school use; these books will go directly to Lake Orion classrooms! Books that are not school appropriate will be donated to charity. With the LOCS book drive, all kids in our community benefit!
NO BOOKS TO DONATE?
No problem. You are invited to become a book sponsor and support our book drive with the purchase of a gift card to Amazon, Barnes and Noble or 2nd and Charles gift cards can be accepted at all Lake Orion schools.
