Shulkey ES Rounds Up Hundreds of New Student Books, Resources
The two organizations hosted a western-themed Reading Roundup celebration in which Whataburger employees delivered copies of the 2019-2020 Texas Bluebonnet Award winning book “El Chupacabras” by Adam Rubin and read with third graders in small groups, Wednesday, September 4. The third graders each took home a personal copy of “El Chupacabras.”
Additionally, the school received a gift certificate good for purchasing additional books from the First Book Marketplace that will support Shulkey’s Reading is Fundamental program which ensures all students receive free books for their home libraries. Total, the school is receiving $4,500 worth of new books and resources as a grand prize recipient of First Book’s Book Wish grant.
“The Whataburger Book Wish Reading Roundup was a wonderful experience for our students and teachers. Our students truly enjoyed reading with the volunteers, and they were very excited to receive copies of their own for their home libraries,” said Lisa Wagoner, the librarian at Shulkey Elementary. “In addition, our whole student body will benefit from the added donation of funds towards the purchase of more books from First Book. Thanks so much to Whataburger and First Book for donating their time and resources to raising readers in our community.”
