The Tattered Pages

The middle school’s student-run bookstore, The Tattered Pages, provides an opportunity for middle school students to purchase books for themselves and gifts without spending actual money. Students earn coupons in a variety of ways, such as donating books, working in the bookstore and completing volunteer jobs.

Research shows that successful students have access to books at home and spend their free time reading for pleasure. Tattered Pages collects donations year-round and holds special events in December and May – in preparation for the gift-giving season and Mother’s Day. Please contact the media center staff with questions.
