Throughout the winter months, students of the district have taken part in various charitable drives to support those in need. One such collection effort was the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive, sponsored by Scholastic. This program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need.

According to the Scholastic website, Scholastic Reading Club classrooms have collected and donated nearly 250,000 pairs of pajamas since 2009, including 84,568 pair this year.

Second-graders at South Bay Elementary School and fourth-graders from Tooker Avenue Elementary School collectively donated 63 pairs of pajamas. For each pair of pajamas donated, Scholastic donates one book to the program.
