Fountain Hill Book Drive
On January 12th 26 students in the Southern Lehigh HS National Honor Society and Moravian College girls and boys basketball teams went to Fountain Hill Elementary School to read to the kids and to give to all students K-5 more than $10,000 worth of new books. Each FH student was given two free books and the message of Martin Luther King was celebrated through class discussion and craft symbolizing acceptance. The books donated were raised with the help of the Cops N Kids Program book labels sold by NHS and the proceeds from a Barnes and Noble Book Fair held on December 20th.
It was a great experience for all and especially rewarding seeing Moravian College students working side by side with the Southern Lehigh students in the individual classrooms, all great role models.
