Thank you to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Hickory Grove Division for supporting our work with 3rd grade reading.  They collaborated with Barnes & Noble, Chick-fil-A, and Target to donate tons and tons of books to our 3rd grade students!  They also came to the school and read with our students to show them how important it is to be a reader.  Thank you CMPD HG Division, we appreciate you!
