FSMS Library

December 2015

December - All NOT Calm, but All Bright!

December was busy with students participating in the Hour of Code, a Scholastic Buy One Get One Free book fair, and semester exams in the FSMS Library! Mrs. Shuffield gave students the opportunity to pay off their library fine while giving back to their community with the "Canned Foods for Fines" canned food drive. Midlothian's Manna House gladly received the donations!
