Colt Spirit Reading Logs

Our Colt readers are off to a great start! Please encourage students to fill out the Colt Spirit Reading Logs and turn them in to the library before school, after school, or during their library class. Students will earn a spirit stick for each log completed and turned in. Students who complete and turn in the final letter "T" reading log (their 10th log) will be invited to the library end of the year party. Students are also being featured on the Colt Spirit posters hanging outside the cafeteria. Thank you for supporting our schoolwide reading program!

New Circulation System Training

Thank you for attending Admin Wednesday in the library last week. If you still have questions about the new circulation system or need help with any of its features, please see me.
