A Diverse Book Donation
A Diverse Book Donation

Tri-C Elementary School would like to thank Carterville resident Abbey Bueza for organizing an online book donation to our school. Through Facebook this past summer, Mrs. Bueza organized an online book donation that provided students at Tri-C Elementary with stories focused on diversity, acceptance, and cultural awareness. The result of the book donation was the addition of over 30, hardback, picture books added to our classroom libraries. With these in hand, our teachers will be better equipped to share stories with students that include characters of color and promote cultures throughout the world. Donated books were provided by the following people: Megan Orso, Casey Dunning, Pam Henderson, Maryanne Vandenbergh, Camie Busby, Stacey Aschemann, Denise Glennon, Lisa Hunsperger, Lisa Lennox, Dawn Null, Dori Nichols, Erin Basso, and many others!  We also appreciate Mrs. Lange (3rd Grade Teacher) for her assistance in recommending book titles for the donation. Thank you to everyone who provided a new book to our school. We are extremely grateful for the support from our community.
