Teachers and administrators at Abingdon Elementary School are proud to continue running the Abingdon Read & Roll Book Bus for it’s 5th year. The book bus was launched in the summer of 2012 with the goal of providing enhanced reading opportunities for students at Abingdon. Once a week for five weeks, the bus makes stops in the community around Arlington, giving students the chance to check out books right in their neighborhood. The bus is staffed by Abingdon teachers and the school’s principal, all of whom volunteered their time. Inside the bus are over 2,000 books donated by local businesses, nonprofit organization, a local author, and several publishers.
