Join GJHP and Central School Service Club for our trip to
Bernie’s Book Bank
Tuesday, March 20th
All 5th – 8th Graders
Located in Lake Forest, Bernie’s Book Bank collects new and gently used children’s books and redistributes them to at-risk children throughout the Chicagoland area. Your child will sort, sticker, and bag books for redistribution.
Students should meet in the OASIS directly after school for a light snack. We will leave for Bernie’s at 3:35pm and volunteer from 4pm-5:30pm. This trip is a collaboration with Central School’s Service Club. All students will be transported to and from Bernie’s Book Bank on a bus. GJHP Staff and Service Club Coordinators will be chaperoning this trip.
The two weeks prior to our All School Trip to Bernie’s we will be holding a book drive. Please consider donating some new or gently used books for us to bring on our trip on March 20th.
