Former teacher continues to give back

Donation

Retired Dunkirk teacher John Bogardus visited the Intermediate School in October to make a donation on behalf of community members, local clubs and businesses, including Pizza Village, that supported the Bikes-4-Book program. This initiative supported literacy in the District prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The donation will put books in the hands of students in grades three through six by expanding school library texts that reflect the diversity of our population, giving gifts to students at Christmas, sponsoring classroom reading challenges, and planning events to promote a Dr. Seuss-inspired Read Across America literacy week at the Intermediate School.

Dunkirk is grateful for this incredible gift!
