Students must come with a book and may relax and read in the comfy library chairs

Tuesdays and Thursdays- Kinder, 1st, and 2nd Grade


Week B- Makerspaces and Technology 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 a.m.

Students may create by building or drawing, they may play games with friends, they may use the iPads and play learning games, or use the computers.
