Templeton Middle School students celebrated Read Across America by collecting 600 new and gently-used books for children. The collection of 15 boxes of books far exceeded last year’s total of 389. Student Council representatives provided assistance in promoting the all-school activity.
The book drive benefited Next Door Milwaukee, an award-winning early education provider that focuses on improving literacy and school readiness for Milwaukee children ages birth to five years. The group is dedicated to closing the achievement gap through literacy programs.
Templeton Middle School is located at N59 W22490 Silver Spring Drive, Sussex.
