Library News

Congratulations to the following students who submitted poetry to a national publication and were selected for inclusion. We worked on Hikus and submitted close to 70 in total - the following students were selected to be included in the anthology! The library will have a copy, and they can be purchased at the following site

5th grade: Cali, Sebastian E, and Maxwell

4th grade: Daksh, Juliette, and Maddie

The last day to check out books is June 7th. We will be on a heavy campaign to get all books returned as soon as possible so we can get everything processed for the end of the year.

The public library has amazing resources for the summer, from book recommendations and read-alouds to classes, and craft packets. I highly recommend connecting with them for their regular emails. Link to subscribe to public Library

Thank you all for your support.
