And more Books!

Scholastic notified REMS that we’re receiving a $5000.00 dollar book grant from the James Patterson Library Grant.  Last year Mrs. Hale wrote a grant request for REMS.  REMS is one of 467 schools in the second round, to receive grants.

James Patterson is a famous adult author who pledged his own money so that schools can have books for their libraries.  Mr. Patterson pledged a total of $1.25 million dollars to school libraries and then upped it to $1.75 million.  He read all of the grant finalist applications himself and selected our school from over 20,000 applications.

Congratulations REMS for winning the grant and thank you Mr. Patterson!
