KES Book Swap


KES students participated in our 1st Annual KES Book Swap in December, and it was a huge success!  Students traded their own gently-used books for ones other students had brought in for the swap.  Many walked out with up to 10 books that were new to them.  This will promote good literacy habits without a price-tag!
