Forder Elementary expands classroom libraries

Third-graders from Forder Elementary School in the Mehlville School District, from left, Ajla Mesinovic, Elizabeth Kittinger, Jarrett Hauler and Christian Cotner stand next to a bin filled with more than 1,500 books collected during the school’s recent book drive. The one-week collection, coordinated by the school’s PTO, encouraged pupils and their families to donate new or gently used books to expand the libraries in each classroom. ‘The staff and students were amazed to see how many books were collected,’ second-grade teacher Angie Scher stated in a district news release.
