Foundation's Book Donation
The Foundation is proud to have donated a book to each D95 elementary aged student, which was handed out during the pick-up process assigned by each elementary school. Dr. Kelley Gallt, Superintendent, said, "I am so excited and grateful for this donation, as a love of reading is extremely important to the overall success of a child’s learning experience."
