For the month of December, grades K-2 will be reading different stories about the holidays and working on activities in the reader's theater. You can check out some performances on the Bush Library twitter page @bush_library. Third grade will be working on their library skills in a fun-filled game of Holiday Jeopardy. Fourth graders are working on a Cereal Box Book Report. Each 4th grader will need their own empty cereal box for this project. If you would like to donate empty cereal boxes for this project, you can send them to the library. Lastly, the Librarian, Mrs. Williams is working on book donations to the school. This is for our annual book drive, where every student will receive a book for the holiday to keep. Follow the @bush_library on Twitter for more sneak peeks at the fun going on in the library.
