Thank You Henrico Education Foundatiton

Librarian Nancy Essid, Paula Roop from HEF and author Med Medina

Once again the Henrico Education Foundation is helping our students at Ridge.  We recently were awarded a grant to purchase Meg Medina books for each of our students AND more diversity books for our school library.  We know that it is important for readers to see themselves in the stories in books.  It also helps to develop empathy for people who are different from us.  Whether a book is a mirror that lets us see ourselves in a story, or a window into someone else’s life it is a win win!  Thank you HEF!
