2000 pairs of shoes, donated


The One Book - One School movement took an extra leap this year, as it inspired the Thomas and South communities to give.

Inspired by the book Ghost, by Jason Reynolds, students at both South & Thomas Middle Schools lead a donation campaign that asked for their communities to bring in any extra pairs of shoes to be donated.

The donation campaign manifested over 2000 pairs of shoes that were packed up and delivered to the organization Soles4Souls by the students.

Author Jason Reynolds inspired our students who then inspired their communities.
