Sandy Chin knew the children needed books but this was a financial burden for many of the families. The children were unable to read during the summer because they did not have any books. This can cause their reading level to backslide. Some public libraries are offering reading programs for the summer but some parents are unable to go. Ms. Chin knew many children regarded books as treasures so she decided to have a summer book drive.
The books would be given to the children for free so every kindergarten child would have a book of their very own. The drive was called Books, Boxes & Bodies. The response was so good, each child received several books. Over three thousand books were donated during the week. The children chose the books that peaked their interests. If not for Sandy Chin, these children would not have been clutching their books with smiles upon their faces.
Chin believes PS11 is special. The PTA is very involved with the school, they raise funds to make certain the families unable to purchase school supplies for their children will have what they need. This eliminates the worry of finding money to pay for the required school supplies and prevents the students from dreading being without. Books are important to Sandy Chin. She is devoted to her two children and their names came from fictional books.
Nolan and Taggart are living proof there is power to be found in reading books. Ms. Chin wants her children to have the same love of books she had when she was a child. Sandy Chin understands how important a book is when it is in the hands of a child. This is why she made certain the children at PS11 had books to read over the summer.
