On December 20th, the eighth-grade student council of Prescott Valley’s Acorn Montessori School delivered a bookshelf that they crafted, sanded and painted themselves. This donation was complete with age-appropriate books, to be placed in West Yavapai Guidance Clinic’s children’s counseling center on Windsong Drive in Prescott Valley. The students’ community outreach is in conjunction with the Thirty Million Words initiative which seeks to harness the power of parent language to build a child’s brain and impact his or her future.
