Fourth grade students at Eagleridge Elementary in Ferndale have been the recipient of books purchased by Assistance League of Bellingham through their Books and Beyond Program.
Recently Ferndale schools changed their reading program to ARC Core, a high-quality curriculum designed to accelerate learning. As a result, the Eagleridge school library did not have enough animal topic books for all fourth graders to check out books at the same time. Therefore, Assistance League has provided animal books for 75 students in three classes purchased through Scholastic Books.
Sharon Lawler, Eagleridge School Librarian says, “It is so good for our students to see what a positive impact the community can have on our schools.”
