Elkhorn Hills Methodist Church in Elkhorn recently donated $1,836 to DC West Elementary School in Valley to buy guided reading books for the book room. The money will be used to purchase six copies of 60 different guided reading books for the second grade level. The Mission Committee from the church had received an anonymous donation to be used in the local area and chose the school as the recipient. Margie Crumley (left) from the church came to DC West Elementary School on October 12 to present the check to the second graders. With her (l-r) are second grade teacher Connie Rance, who accepted the donation on behalf of the school; Title I teacher Katie Stratman, who talked to the second graders about the importance of reading; and library para, Patti Jensen.
