Students and staff: This is a time of year when you might have some extra books that you know would look great on a bookshelf here at DASH. Our Media Center, needs and is asking for book donations. This can include personal purchases such as novels, short story collections, poetry anthologies, biographies, autobiographies, non-fiction reference works, paperbacks, hardbound, and so on. It’s all good, and it’s all needed. Do a good thing today, and donate gently used books to the media center. See Mrs. Lucy Franklin or any other parent on duty in the media center. And thanks!
