The PA Principals Association will be coordinating a book donation project during the National Principals Conference in Philadelphia, July 9-11. Conference participants are encouraged to donate a book appropriate for the K-8 level.  The books will be donated to Southhawk School which is in the School District of Philadelphia. Andrew Lukov is the principal of Southhawk School that has a population of 41% English Language Learners so Spanish versions are also needed.

Books can be dropped off at the PA Principals booth adjacent to the Scholastic area. 
If you forget to bring a book, you can purchase one from Scholastic and donate it to this school.

The PA Principals Association thanks you in advance for your support of this project. Please help us put books in the hands of these children!
