Thank you to everyone who helped make this fall's book fair a success! Students helped set up and take down tables. Parents worked the cash register. And teacher and administrators helped students find and pay for books. 

We were able to add over $200 in books to our library! We were also able to use additional money to help fund an upcoming author visit in February. 

Thank you, everyone!

Inspired by Alan Rabinowitz's book, A Boy and a Jaguar, the library will be collecting loose change to send to Dr. Rabinowitz’s wild cat conservation program, Panthera. Children will use their change to “vote” for their favorite cat—lion, tiger, snow leopard or jaguar.

Students and teachers learned about the value of reading and working hard from author and former NFL player, Tim Green. After Mrs. Green's motivational presentation, he came to the library to sign book and talk with students. This selfie was captured just before Mr. Green left the building! 

Look for opportunities to win Tim Green's newest book in March!
