Connect with a penpal overseas!

Join us for a virtual information session about our upcoming Books as Bridges program!

Books as Bridges is a cultural exchange program through our friends at the International Book Project (IBP). IBP will connect us with an international partner classroom for the course of the school year. Through Books as Bridges, students will write letters to penpals, learn about cultural literacy, and collaborate on a service project for our friends overseas! Our international partners will also receive books to build their classroom libraries. This is an ongoing program that will continue for the entirety of the school year.
