suburu loves learning!

This year our school was a recipient of the Subaru sponsored charity, Subaru Loves Learning.  This charity gives away free science and STEM related books to schools and other organizations. Back in September staff from Bob Baker Subaru delivered around a dozen boxes that were stuffed full of brand new copies of books that were either finalists or winners of the annual SB & F Award, an award given to books for excellence in science writing. Aside from being award winning books, all of these titles hit on several core standards for our students so that they can see the real connections to what they are learning in our classrooms here at CHM.

Thank you to Subaru and everyone else who supports this program for making a difference to this next generation of learners!
