The English Department requires the reading of literary texts at each grade level and in each class to assist students in meeting the goals of our curriculum and to instill a lifelong habit of reading.
For these reasons, we are working with Barnes and Noble and the PTSA to provide these texts for purchase during our registration this summer. (Please note that buying these books is NOT a requirement. The library provides these texts to the students free of charge; however, students may not annotate books provided by the school.)
Please donate any used textbooks or novels to the Tesoro PTSA.
For many years PTSA has organized a used textbook program that eliminates the need for students to carry books to and from school every day. It also allows students to keep their school issued books at home, in an environment that is less likely to result in damage.
If you have any used textbooks or novels, please consider donating them to the Tesoro Got Books? Used Book Program. In fact, any books that you own that are used in our classrooms can be donated to PTSA and recycled in our fundraiser. There is a PTSA collection basket located in the Tesoro Library.
Used books are available for purchase at very reasonable prices during registration and throughout the school year at the student store. All of the money PTSA raises through this program is allocated for use by the Titan Library to enhance the selection of books for all students. In 2014-15, the Used Book Program raised $1,500 for the Library. Thank you for your participation!
If you find a book you would like to buy…just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange to have the book available at the Tesoro Library. Remember, we update this list frequently so check back often!
