ROCKY RIVER, Ohio - Goldwood Primary School students have a new and unique place to get their books. Students and staff unveiled the new book vending machine with a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 3.
Students who model positive behavior and focus on the monthly character trait, such as kindness, leadership, or respectfulness, will have an opportunity to earn a token for the book vending machine. They put that token into the vending machine and pick out one book from the machine that they are allowed to keep.
The vending machine was funded by the Rocky River Education Foundation after GPS Intervention Specialist Tara Young wrote a grant for the project.
“We are always trying to cultivate a love of reading at Goldwood and thought this would be a great way to tie it all together,” Young said.
