Students Collect Books for 'Promising Pages'
First graders in Miss Elizabeth Ryan's class collected 54 gently used books as an end-of-the year gift and service project. The books have been donated to Promising Pages, a literacy organization serving the greater Charlotte area. These books will be holistically cleaned and given to children who do not have books.
Promising Pages Mascot, Erma the Bookworma, came to Miss Ryan's class to accept the books and encourage the children to be better readers. In the picture, Erma talks with Candice, one of the book collectors.
