FSMS Library

MARCH 2016

Goings On:

During the month of March, many students and teachers prepared for STAAR testing. Those who came to the library prepared for the annual Bluebonnet Book Bowl competition, created in the FSMS Library Makerspace, worked on class projects, voted for which book series should advance in the March Madness of Books, or READ books they checked out of the FSMS Libary!
