Members of Mu Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma dropped off bags filled with new books to the students of Alyssa Leone's class at the Rock Island Academy and Amanda Long's class at Thomas Jefferson.
The books selected for the bags feature characters who reflect the diversity of the district's students. The project was a collaboration of three groups: Mu Chapter DKG (a professional society of women educators), the local chapter of the NAACP, and the Rock Island Jr. Woman's Club, who sewed and handpainted the bags.
Funding came from all three groups as well as a generous grant from the Foundation for Educational Studies, Inc., a part of the Illinois organization of DKG.
Thank you for supporting our students!
