Students and Parents,

March Book Madness was a great event for our students to participate in. Every book in the March Madness bracket has been checked out and some books have a waiting list of students ready to read it.

The Scholastic Book Fair will be in our library from April 1st through April 9th. Students will be bringing home book flyers and everyone has access to the online book flyer and book fair information on Summit's website.

I will also be sending out emails soon to students who haven't turned in their late books. Books have been marked lost after they have not been turned in for three months. If you find your book, please turn it in and the fine will be taken off your account.

Grace Ellis and I have completed adding the final touches to our circulation desk area. It looks fabulous! The students have been very complimentary of the new look.
