Teacher Appreciation Book Drive

Teacher Appreciation Book Drive:

Welcome back to a new school year, parents/students!   NRE PTA would like to invite you to participate in our Teacher Appreciation Book Drive.  Last year was our first time to do this and it was phenomenal.  We had so many books donated by our families and the teachers/staff really appreciated being able to add books to their classroom libraries.


This year, we will again be collecting books in good condition that would be appropriate for grades K-6 classroom libraries.  This includes picture books, chapter books, novels (our upper grades really appreciate these!), books about music, art, feelings (for our specialists to use in their groups), Spanish & Mandarin (including about their cultures, events, etc.)...the list is endless.  So if you have books that your children have outgrown and would like to donate them to Northridge Elementary School, we would greatly appreciate it!


We will begin collecting books next Friday, August 18th, at the Back to School Carnival. There will be boxes available for you to drop them off.  They can also be dropped off the following week in boxes that will be available in the front lobby.  Once collected, we will have a free book fair after school for the teachers/staff, who can pick out books for their students/class. 


Thank you so much for your help in this great project that not only benefits the teachers/staff but also the children at NRE!  Have a great 2017-2018 school year!

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
