Paddock Elementary School students in Mary Jo Monroe’s second-grade classroom are busy with new reading materials thanks to a new sponsored program; Book of the Month Club.
Monroe said her class is participating in the club through donations made by sponsors who are willing to cover the cost of $1 for a Scholastic book each month for each child.  Or, sponsors can donate $9 which covers one child for the school year.  Twenty-five dollars would cover the entire class for a month.
“Do Unto Otters”, written by Laurie Keller, a book about manners, was the choice for September.  Monroe said they read the book in class and talked about classroom manners. She said, “It was an automatic hit.”
Monroe said the students loved getting their own copy and reading the book again individually.
Monroe’s classroom has received donations that will supply the students through January of next year.   She said, “We are looking for others that might be willing to donate.”
Other classrooms at the school are also participating in the program. Should you decide to support Monroe’s class, email monroem [at] milanareaschools [dot] org. for more information.
