Stop by the Waltham Public Library on July 27 at 10:30 a.m.  Ms. Paradis and Mrs. Hanley from Whittemore School are going to be sharing great books for students entering K-2 and looking at our favorite animal website!  We hope to see lots of you there as we share our favorite true stories of jungle adventures (like this one!!)

Borrow a telescope:
The Plympton Library now has 2 telescopes to checkout to families who would like to borrow these to look at the night sky with their children.  Students who would like to take these home for a week, can get a permission slip from the library.  Students must have this slip signed to borrow a telescope
