Spring 2018 BOOK FAIR

Thank you to all the students and families who shopped, volunteered, and donated.
We added more than 30 books straight from the book fair to the library shelves, and over 130 were ordered with the profits and added to the collection in April. See the slideshow below for some featured titles.

Give 5/Read 5 Book Drive
Summer reading is essential to keep students' skills sharp. Last June we gave away over 2000 books to our students. We are collecting new or gently used books again this year. Please send any donations to the media center. Please send any books by Wednesday, May 23rd.

We need help in the media center for special events like the book fair and Give 5/Read 5, as well as day-to-day activities and operations.  Please contact Mrs. Woodruff if you would like to help out - just once or on a regular basis, help is always welcome!
