Hundreds of students at Cole Elementary School were hand delivered books this afternoon. Tennessee's First Lady Crissy Haslam and dozens of faithful bicyclists and literacy enthusiasts made a five-mile trek to the school with the books loaded on their bikes. The special event was made possible by Ride for Reading, a local non-profit started by Cole teacher Matthew Portell. Because of the organization's care for physical and mental education, every student at the school will take home a new book this afternoon and a few lessons about bicycle safety.
Buena Vista Enhanced Option School’s student council recently held a fundraising fall dance. The school raised 200 that will be donated to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital!
