I received an email from our high school media person Donna Morgan today with the following information.

In honor of WORLD BOOK NIGHT 2014, which Susan Slagle-Boyd an instructional assistant here at SLCSD made me aware of, students were given the opportunity to sign up to win a free book. Many students took advantage of this opportunity! A drawing was held today during SSR and the following students were lucky winners of a free book:

Winners of the book “Same Difference”

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Susan Slagle-Boyd for her generous donation of 15 copies of the book “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and to her sister Peggy Slagle for donating 8 copies of the book “Same Difference”.

Thank you to all that participated – and to those that didn’t – be watching next year for another opportunity to win a free book in honor of World Book Night.

I was not aware of this opportunity until today. If you go to:, you will find information about this chance to obtain free books to distribute to students. Please sign up for the newsletter, so you can apply to be a donor next year. What a great project. Thanks so much to Donna Morgan, Susan Slagle-Boyd, and Peggy Slagle. Enjoy the books, student winners!
