Thank You from New Heights Academy Charter School

Dear Mr. Mazor,

On behalf of the entire New Heights Academy Charter School family, I would like to thank you for Reader To Reader's generous donation of books to our middle school.

We are a new charter middle and high school providing a college preparatory education to kids from two historically underserved neighborhoods of New York City, Washington Heights and Inwood. We are in the midst of a massive renovation project, turning our formerly part-vacant building into a safe and dynamic educational center for our students.

As we are without a central library, our goal has been to build classroom libraries. This is especially important because each week, school-wide, we set aside time for independent reading. But this renovation project has placed heavy constraints on our budget, making it difficult to purchase books that fall outside of the regular class lessons.

That's why the book donations from Reader To Reader have been so vital to us.

The books you have donated appeal to a range of interests and have increased our middle school students' choices, and with that we are certain comes an increased love and enjoyment of reading.Thank you once again for your support.

Warm regards,

Courtenay Barton
Development Manager
New Heights Academy Charter School
New York, NY
