This collection of over 50,000 books, courtesy of Olathe Rotary Club, will reduce summer slide for KCKPS students. Summer slide is the slight regression of knowledge between the end of school and the beginning of the next school year. Students in early childhood centers and elementary schools will receive three books each. Students in middle school and high school will receive two books.
