Independence Primary School students had an exciting unveiling of a brand new vending machine during the Scholastic Book Fair the week of October 11. Instead of the machine being filled with the typical snacks, candy or drinks, it had dozens of colorful books. As a gift from the IPS PTO, this book vending machine was installed in the main lobby and is now the newest resource to help promote positive behavior, literacy and the excitement to read.
