We have had a great start in the Library. We are learning about rules, book care, picking out good fit books, center options, getting to know routines and each other.  Please help students to be responsible by taking good care of their books and bring them back for other students to get a turn.  Students can borrow books for one week or renew to keep it for two weeks.
Sneak Peek kicked off our New Makerspace, some great photos of kids reading in other places in front of the green screen. Check out our donation requests.

September is Library Card Sign-Up month.  Grafton has a great public library and it is across the street from the school.  Students don't always have to wait for the next book in the series, the selection is larger than school can fit, and you get more books for more time.  Check it out!
