A Note from the Nurse

The nurse has several unclaimed glasses in the clinic. The classes have been turned in this school year. Please let Nurse Terry know if one of the glasses belong to your student.

Thank you.

A Note from the Librarian

During November your student will be learning about two programs, Tumblebooks and Overdrive, that provide online books in English and Spanish to students for free.

Both programs can be logged on to at home through the Boyd Library Website “Ebook Resources”.

Both Tumblebooks and Overdrive have apps that can be downloaded for free on to any phone or tablet. The Tumblebooks app is under the same name while the Overdrive app is named Sora by Overdrive.
