Welcome to Dr. Charles R. Drew Elementary School’s Library



Happy New Year from the Drew Library!

We had a wonderful end of the year celebration with the Blizzard of Books, funded by the wonderful ladies of the Northern Virginia Alumnae Chapter (NoVAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  Every student received a forever book. Elsa was there to spread her love of reading, and yes, there was snow. If a child was absent on December 17th, they will receive one upon our return.We have exciting new books that have arrived and will be processed this week.

I have received a grant from the National Capital Bank to fund the program Virginia Reads One Book in March. Every student/family will receive a copy of the book Dog Days.  We will have a month of special activities based on reading the book.  One of the activities will be bedtime readings. . . .more to come.  Watch for more information.

In January:  We will be celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday with biographies, songs, poetry, and virtual field trips.We will be learning about primary sources and research skills with the fourth and the fifth graders.  I will begin Read A-louds with the Virginia Reader’s program.  The students will vote on their favorite book in April.  Look for these book titles on the library page of the Drew Website, https://drew.apsva.us/library/
