Retired educators donate books to Jackson Elementary students

Feb 12, 2015 | Community Relations

Retired educators Shirley Bonham, Sandra Sindel, Eileen Wildy, Kay Danziger, Judi Vernon, Robyn Burkhart, Nancy Nowak and Jackson principal Deana Gonzalez in the Jackson Elementary library.

Members of Fort Bend County Retired Educators visited Lamar CISD’s Jackson Elementary, giving every kindergarten and first-grade student a new book. 

The group also donated many gently-used books for teachers to use in their classroom libraries. Most of the books were donated by members during 2014 as part of Texas Retired Teacher Association's Children's Book Project, but the group also purchased new books. 

A total of 327 books were donated to the students and teachers at Jackson. 

The group donates books every year, with Pink Elementary, Project L.E.A.R.N. and the Seguin Early Childhood Center being earlier recipients.
