Robert Kerr Elementary is home to Durand's second, third, fourth and fifth grade students.  Recent scores put the school at the top of all the county's elementary schools, and the staff and administration want to continue to foster student excitement about learning, by continuing a program from last year that sent a book home with every student each month -- theirs to keep.

Donations last year made the pogram possible.  Donations this year have been slow to roll in.  Will you help?  $10 buys a book for one student to take home each month for the entire school year.

Nearly $1,500 of the $3,600 necessary has been raised so far.  Recently, a GoFundMe was established to make donating easier.

Donations can also be dropped off at the school.

The $3,600 fundraising goal allows for the purchase of $1 books.  Additional funds will allow for the purchase of more expensive books for the students.  Many of the more popular books cost more than $1.
