School Donation Program

Jump to Schools List

We are very excited to announce our Books for Schools 2017 donation campaign! With the help and support of our generous members, together we have donated over 150,000 books to needy schools and organizations across the country.

For each credit you donate we will supply one new book to a deserving child. For many of these children this will be the first book they can call their own. Your gift of PBS Money (no amount is too small!) will help offset the cost of shipping. Thank you for sharing the gift of reading and the love of books with children!

 


 

If you know of an elementary school in need, suggest it here and we will consider it for our next Books for School donation drive.

Meyer Elementary is a pre-k thru 5th grade campus, set up as following 3-pre k classes, 5 kindergarten classes, 6 first grade classes, 6 second grade classes, 5 third grade classes, 6 fourth grade classes and 5 fifth grade classes. We are a title one school that is growing fast with the new blooming neighborhoods surrounding our area.
 
We serve about 650 students per year, most of which are ESL students who are very eager to learn.

It would mean the absolute world to us to be able to give students a book of their own to take home, as most of our students do not have the proper materials at home to help them become strong readers.

Our students are more than deserving and make teaching so much fun. I am so lucky to be a part of Meyer Elementary and get to work with them and their families everyday. We appreciate all that you do for our future leaders. 


Our actual campus was not affected by the flooding/hurricane in August. However, many of our students,their families and our surrounding area was.  We have a lot of students who are now at our campus because they are displaced from their homes.  Many of them are living in motels around our school because they lost their homes.  They will be at our campus for probably the remainder of the year since their schools and homes are all needing to be renovated.  We have added portables to help accommodate all of the incoming students we are receiving.
 
Sincerely,
