Earlier this year, teacher and librarian Erin Giles contacted Success Won’t Wait. Her plea? To help provide books for The Central School, which educates over 200+ students — but at the time had no library!
We’ve been busy ever since sorting through to find just the right books. Three separate donations have been made. And today, we made yet another of 250 books. The total donated to the school now tops 1,000 books!
If you’d like to support this project, books can be dropped off Monday – Friday from 8-2:30. Books can also be mailed to our office/warehouse at 1729 Marsh Road, Wilmington, DE 19810.
About The Central School
The school program addresses not only cognitive development but also vocational interests and social skill development. The Central School gives students basic educational skills, language arts, mathematics, computer, science and social studies with the primary focus on increasing their reading ability.
Students in this program will have the opportunity to explore the world of work in many profit and non-profit agencies. To enhance the learning environment at the middle and high school levels, vocational and academic teachers are paired to develop an integrated curriculum within their classrooms.
Students admitted to The Central School receive services which are not available in special education programs in the regular public school. Intensive individualized instruction is provided by a staff of special education and vocational teachers assisted by a staff of classroom aides.
Read now, because success won’t wait! Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware.
