One of our goals is to ensure as many children as possible receive books and have access to books. The All for Books program allows this to happen, and it’s easy for your child to participate!
Each day send in your pocket change with your child.
Scholastic Book Fairs will match monetary donations raised to purchase books for underprivileged children, up to one million books to two non-profit organizations dedicated to helping children, families and teachers acquire books and educational resources – Kids in Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc.

Mini- Art is a special art class let by volunteers.
Once a month volunteers teach each grade a special art lesson.This is an opportunity for students to receive some art education at school. Sally McClaine will be Mini-Art coordinator for both Gilson Brown and West but she needs lots of help. She needs people who will teach the lesson for each grade and also other volunteers to help in other ways (passing out supplies, helping students, set up and clean up, etc). The schedule is being formed now. There will be morning and afternoon times. You don't have to be an artist. The lessons and supplies will be ready for you. Sally will also train anyone.
