Hi families,

Hope your school year is off to a great start.  2 big things.  We have added an important dates section to the website to help you keep track of media center happenings.  It will be updated throughout the year. I have listed everything so far below.  Also, this weekend is the Books for Keeps sale.  In case you didn’t know, Books for Keeps is an amazing program that provides 12 free books EVERY YEAR to our K-5 students. You can help support their mission by shopping for books at bargain prices!
