Ocean State Job Lot Donates Two Skids of New English & Spanish Books to Burns Latino Studies Academy

Published on May 5, 2016

 

On Thursday, April 28, 2016, through Ocean State Job Lot’s generosity, two skids of new books written in either Spanish or English were donated to Burns Latino Studies Academy. Burns Academy is a school that has a Bilingual population of 42% Spanish speaking students and we are always looking for good books to help our Spanish speaking population acquire strong reading habits.  This donation was indeed a very big help in providing quality reading materials to our students.

These book will be given to students and become a part of our student summer reading program.

When the books arrived and were unpacked in front of our third grade students they were very excited and appreciative when they were told they would be given these books to keep.

Thank you, Ocean State Job Lot!!!!!!!
