Students in Mr. Miller’s class at Northside School used their muscles to help load hundreds of books into the waiting van. Northside School participated in a successful book drive to support the local charity, The Book Fairies. Over the course of a week, students cleared out their bookcases and donated the books to others in need. The books will be sorted by The Book Fairies and redistributed back out to Long Island school districts deemed in high poverty. Over the course of the school year, The Book Fairies has distributed over 30,000 books to Wyandanch, Hempstead, Amityville, Roosevelt and more. It has been a successful campaign that engages students to help students right here on the island.
