Before I type another blog post, I need to thank Pam Erickson, and the Friends of Northwest. My district is large, and getting funding through bureaucratic red tape takes time; thankfully, my school has an amazing PTO. Before the great floods of 2014, NWSA had our first bookfair and raised $900.00. Although the bookfair money was originally earmarked for books, Pam made it possible for us to use the money to begin our makeover. That is how I was able to purchase paint and other materials. Today Pam offered get volunteers to help paint the rest of the book shelves….wow!!!!
