Mrs. Barborak earned the James Patterson and Scholastic Book Club Award on Thursday September 5, 2019. She earned a two-hundred and fifty dollar grant by writing an essay to Scholastic Books, stating why reading is important. She is going to put the cash towards historical books in her classroom. The books she is currently choosing will incorporate in her daily lessons. Earning the grant will go a long way to help her improve the learning resources for her students.
