On behalf of Books for Collier Kids, congratulations to Dr. Leslie Ricciardelli on her appointment as superintendent!
Books for Collier Kids is an all volunteer-run nonprofit organization that has worked closely with Collier County Public Schools since 2005 to distribute more than 1.6 million new, age-appropriate books to children in need throughout our community.
We are thrilled that the School Board picked the best candidate for the position – an educator who grew up in the area, has experience working in Broward, Orange and Seminole counties, as well as in various positions in the greater Naples area, throughout her more than 28 years in education.
Our volunteers look forward to building upon the long-standing relationship we’ve established with CCPS as we collaborate with Dr. Ricciardelli to ensure all students in our community have access to books in the home. Books to read, share and cherish. Books that help them succeed in school and life.
Once again, congratulations to Dr. Ricciardelli for your appointment and to the School Board for, as Dr. Riccardelli noted, “putting our students, schools and community first.”
