Forty-six students in the SASED Deaf and Hard of Hearing program at North School in District 45 participated in the second annual Illinois Service Resource Center's community service day on May 1, 2013. This year's focus was People Helping People.

The children set a goal to collect 100 new/gently used children's books for the Bernie's Book Bank who distributes books to children who would otherwise not be able to own books. These amazing students surpassed their goal by collecting 585 books! They have so much to be proud of and learned wonderful lessons about helping others. Ms. Robin Cullen oversaw the project for the students and stated how proud she is and that the students did a great job. See the second page where students tracked their goal.
