Helen Street 5th Graders Give Back! 5th graders recently went on a trip to the New Haven Reads Book Bank where they were able to choose books to bring home to keep. One student came up with the idea to have a Helen Street book drive in order to help others, and last week Helen Street School donated 5 full boxes of books to the Book Bank! It's great to know that our students understand the importance of "giving back" to those in need!
