Teachers have signed up their class for a reserved time slot to attend the book swap event. Each student may swap up to ten books. The Weatherstone PTA is encouraging incremental donations for the book swap. Our goal is to provide every student with a book to take home for summer reading enrichment. Thank you for your support! Any leftover books will be donated to the classroom libraries and to our Backpack Buddies Program for next year!
