Mayfield Junior School’s recent spring Recycle & Read event, “Donuts with Dads & Special Friends,” was brought to campus, where kindergarten through 8th-grade students explored books with loved ones while enjoying donuts and refreshments.
“Any chance to go on campus with our kids is a great day,” Mayfield parent Tim Barden said. “We appreciate the school putting this together, specifically for the dads.”
Spencer Sanderson, a parent, agreed: “It’s a great event all around. The all-dad and friends aspect was special for me.”
Recycle & Read aims to inspire readers to find and enjoy books and is part of Mayfield’s yearlong “Greatest Books on Earth” theme that celebrates the magic of reading books. Parent volunteers sort and organize recycled books donated by the school community for the on-campus events.
“Donuts with Dads & Special Friends” was organized by Parent Association volunteers Yassie Holliday and Vienna Nguyen, with the support of librarian Tatiana Guyer,
Guyer plays an integral role in supporting Mayfield students’ appetite to read and learn.
“We are blessed to have avid student readers and wonderful parent volunteers who organize a beautiful community event that encourages students to take books home free of charge,” she said.
