Truman PTA receives 100 books and visit by Amelia Bedelia

The Truman School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) was the lucky recipient of 100 "I Can Read" books and a free character costume rental from Harper Collins Publishing. The local PTA was chosen by the National PTA Association to receive this prize.

Students that attended the Science Family Night on May 9 were treated to a free book and a visit from Amelia Bedelia. The remaining books will be donated to the Truman School Reading Challenge cart for students to choose at the end of each month when they meet the challenge of reading each night for a month.

The Truman PTA would like to thank Harper Collins Publishing and the National PTA for their generosity!
