Special thanks to Lacy Subaru of Catskill, who on November 6 generously donated five boxes of award-winning science books to Catskill Middle School. Members of the dealership’s Lacy family personally delivered the books to the front steps of our school, where a representative group of students, science and STEAM faculty, and administrators were waiting to unload them. The group eagerly dug through the boxes to check out the exciting titles inside.
This is Lacy Subaru’s third year making such a donation to CMS. According to Lacy, it stems from the dealership’s commitment to the Subaru Love Promise, with the aim of making a positive impact in the world and making the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible. Both Subaru of America and the local Subaru dealer contribute funds into this program, which help pay for books and projects.
This year’s selection exemplifies outstanding and engaging science writing and illustration for young readers – real page turners! The donation was made possible by the Subaru Loves Learning Project in partnership with the Science Books & Films (SB&F) Project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The donated titles were selected from the winners and finalists of the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books, an award that emphasizes the importance of science books for both information and enjoyment.
CMS will distribute the books throughout the science and STEAM classrooms, where they will serve to enrich our curriculum and be available for students to enjoy on their own.
