High School News

It was great to see all of Ms. Smith's, Mrs. Guerrero, and Mrs. Cox's English classes in the Library last Friday. They'll all be back on the 18th to get new books. I've placed an order for new books and made special shelving just for the High School Students.

I want to give a "shout out" to my awesome Library Aides this semester: 5th period I have Allison Counts and Taylor Griffith. 8th period I have Jazmin Perez. All three work hard at shelving books and assisting the many students who come in to the Library.
