April 2022

April is National Poetry Month and the celebration of National Library Week!

Can you believe that we are so close to summer? So many things need to happen between now and then- banquets, awards ceremonies, final tests, and projects. Please come into the library to find you a book or two to read. We will be closing the library the 2nd week of May so that we can complete inventory and collect all of our books. I have had so much fun with all of the activities and things happening this year in the library and our amazing school. Looking forward to finishing strong and having a great end to the school year.

Quote of the Month

“The April winds are magical,

And thrill our tuneful frames;

The garden-walks are passional

To bachelors and dames.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
