Darth Vader has nothing on this Valentine!

This library lady had to show off a first graders cool Valentine's box. It is Star Wars after all. There was a unicorn one she loved as well. It would be great for next year's library Enchanted Forest theme. Great job on the parties parents and teachers!

Finding the memories...

Special Request: If anyone has yearbooks in the years posted below, which you are willing to donate to the school library to fill in the years we do not have, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The end is nearer than you think:

Students & Parents: Please be sure you/your student does not have any unfulfilled obligations. It's not nagging, really. It is a gentle reminder to avoid unnecessary surprises.

Possible obligations: laptop insurance, bills carried over from last year, lunch bill, lost books or other borrowed items, FCCLA fees, club dues, athletic dues. Your understanding is appreciated.
