Who is Maryvale's Book Fairy
The Book Fairy program was founded in June 2004 to increase literacy in the Maryvale ES community, where 61% of the students are on ‘free and reduced lunch’.
Our goal is to give each child a new book each month of the school year.
Thanks to the generous support of the students, parents and staff, the Book Fairy distributed books a total of 1,452 books its first year, and will be distributing its 10,000th book this year.
A large part of our increase in donations has come from the PTA.
Our goal is to offer monthly donations to all needy classes, grades pre-K through 5th grade, building a solid foundation for literacy and lifelong success in our community.
