1. Two 8th grade former RDLS students, Maya Burkstrand & Bridget Foley, shared information about a Book Drive they are organizing. Their goal is to give each RDLS student 1-2 books to take home and keep before summer vacation. There will be a collection box for books at school. There will be a flyer with more information coming home soon. They are also looking for support in a few areas:

1. Resources to get donated books, especially Spanish books.

2. Parents willing to help level and distribute books later in the spring
