Project Cicero – March 4 to 7
This is the perfect way to donate any of your child’s outgrown books
We are pleased to tell you that Kittredge will again be partnering with Project Cicero Bay Area, the children’s book drive that brings much needed books to the classrooms and libraries of under-resourced public schools in the Bay Area. These past two years, families from our school, together with those from other participating San Francisco schools, donated nearly 50,000 books. The book drive distributed these books to nearly 400 teachers, reaching over 15,000 students in need.
The book drive is scheduled to run from Monday, March 4 through Thursday, March 7. We ask families to drop off their child(ren)’s outgrown, gently-used pleasure reading books in the designated boxes during these four days. Members of the book drive’s organizing committee will pick up the books on Friday, March 8, and bring them to a distribution site. Invited public school teachers from these under-resourced schools (Title 1 Funded) will come to a book fair on Saturday, March 9 and select books for their classrooms. The entire book drive will be done within one week.
