THANK YOU to all Southside Families who donated books for our recent book drive. Southside collected 2429 books to help build home libraries of students at Tuttle Elementary. Way to go! Many students and families attended our Up With Books Celebration at Selby Library last week where we met some of our Tuttle friends.
Don’t forget that our Gulf Coast Gives project is up at the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. We have an $800 goal to continue this partnership next year. Currently we have raised $100 of this goal. Remember ANY AMOUNT helps!

Thank you for helping build literate lives across Sarasota!
Remider: The Gulf Coast Community Foundation is sponsoring a grant to help fund the Southside/Tuttle Up with Books Partnership. “Up with Books” is a Sarasota County School District program that is focused on building home libraries and literacy opportunities at lower socio-economic schools to enhance and increase students’ literacy lives. Southsidefamilies have donated more than 2200 new and gently used books to Tuttle this spring as part of this project. The funds from this grant will help ensure that each of the 700 students at Tuttle starts their summer off with multiple new book titles.
Let’s help make a difference in our community over the next 30 days! Click on the link below to donate and help us reach our $800 goal.
