Library Post

Dear Families,

Most students at Highroad Academy visit the HRA Library weekly. I am honored (thrilled) to serve our students as the school Librarian and am always excited to help our students become critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and responsible assistants.

As our library and school community continues to grow, the library is always looking for new ways to acquire new books. Here are a few ways you could help:

  • Donate quality, gently used books from your home
  • Purchase a book from the list below
  • Donate a book in honor of your child’s teacher
  • Make a financial donation
  • Support upcoming Library Fundraising Events (details to follow)

As a thank you for your donations, donated books (ones that are brand new) will be labeled on the inside cover with your family name and picture!
