What is Huskies Behind the Books?
Huskies Behind the Books is a program that’s goal is to collect books, learning resources, and funding for Little Husky World, the North Attendance District’s daycare facility, and the Jacob Andrew Schriber Ball Wish Fund, which was established to provide wishes and funding for Special Education teachers in the EVSC. We will assemble resource packets for both students and teacher, and will be used with both organizations. “It is our goal to reinforce love, respect, and knowledge for literacy while simultaneously making literacy a practical part of children’s lives” says —-.
