We want to sincerely thank our Media Center volunteers,Terry Blaiss, Jenny Brackstone, Becky Russell, Stephanie Schlosser and Leah Wojewoda for their assistance this year with shelving books, helping students and being awesome!
Now that the school year is almost over and the theme of the End of the Year ABC Countdown! for today is Independent Reading Day, I must talk about returning overdue library books! I sent out a challenge to teachers and students to search their classrooms and backpacks for books here at school as well as books at home. Be on the lookout for overdue notices. The last day to check out books is Friday, May 5th and all books are due Friday, May 12th. Please help your students be 100% Accountable and return all library books by May 12th! Thanks for your cooperation!
