Every student at BHESA to receive a book
To quote an old cliché, “Open a book, open your mind.” seems appropriate as the students from Marvin Elementary partnered with the students of Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts to provide the gift of a book.
This is the second year in a row that the students at Marvin have collected gently used or new books to distribute to every student at Benton Heights. This is a way that sister schools can encourage each other and to communicate to the Benton Heights’ students that the knowledge we gain from books can open a student’s mind to explore the world of learning.
As a way of showing BHESA’s appreciation, 5th grade students from Marvin Elementary will be the guest of BHESA at the upcoming production of “Annie, Jr.” on March 20th. Benton Heights will also recognize Marvin Elementary students at the performance to say , “Thank you!”. “We are thrilled that the students at Marvin are providing books for our students to enjoy individually,” said Frank Casstevens, Arts Coordinator at BHESA. He, also added, “This is a positive way to encourage the love of reading which empowers all learning.”
The books are scheduled to arrive at BHESA on March 17th and to be given out before spring break.
