Education Law Committee

Book Drive

The Education Law Committee is conducting a book drive to provide new summer reading books to K- 8 students at Mastery Grover Cleveland Elementary School to help prevent “the summer slide”—the documented loss of reading skills over the summer when students don’t have books at home to read. Philadelphia Bar Association members can buy books on Amazon through a Wish List (titled Cleveland Books) to have books sent directly to the school or drop off any new books at the Bar Association headquarters at 1101 Market Street, 11th Floor, for delivery. The book drive ends on May 31. You can access the Cleveland Books Wish List by clicking here and select the shipping address for Michele Haughey, Gift Registry, to have the books sent directly to the school. Haughey is the school’s Director of Operations. Mastery Grover Cleveland School is located at 3701 N. 19th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19140. For more information, contact Committee Chair Sheilah Vance, svance@svancelawoffices.com or 215-557-9550 (o). Thank you for supporting student summer reading!
