Bailey Scholars Spring 2021 Events

January 19, 2021 - May 1, 2021


Contact: Dacia Munteanu

Join us for the following events:

Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day with us by recording yourself reading a children’s book focused on social justice topics or that feature characters representing diverse backgrounds.  It is highly recommended you use a book that you already have or can find online.  If you do not have access to a book or cannot find a copy of one online, we have a limited number of scanned books online in a Google Drive for you.

If you would rather recommend a longer book for students in middle or high school focused on these same topics, you can record a book recommendation/book review video.
Access to the Drive will be open from January 18th - January 20th.
