Rockingham County Public Schools Receives Books from Toys for Tots Literacy Program
Each of the 13 Title I Schools in Rockingham County received thousands of books from the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation’s Literacy Program. The books were distributed directly to students or will be used in libraries or classrooms. The books were provided to the division for free due to a charitable donation from The UPS Store as well as the generosity of the American public. Books were provided that focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) as well as titles that provide both entertainment and enrichment.
