Parent Advisory Council needs books

The Courtenay Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is asking for public support for its book sale in May.

The Courtenay Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is asking for public support for its book sale in May.

The PAC’s goal is to encourage the children to open their minds to new facts, vocabulary, excitement and adventure.

It wants to get books into more hands of our youth so that they may be able to relate with characters, to help deal with daily activities and to encourage them to try new things and open their minds to new ideas.

By donating your used books, you will help children become life-long learners, taking interest in the literature around them and building their home libraries. You will also help a great school to fundraise for projects and activities.

The PAC asks the public to donate gently used books until April 30. The main focus is on kids and pre-teen books but all books are welcome.

Donations can be dropped off at the school office Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 to 2:30. Courtenay Elementary is at 1540 McPhee Ave., just off 17th Street.

The school will be closed for spring break from March 25 to April 5.
