Mustang Ford Library News!

1st Six Weeks Newsletter

Welcome Back Ford Mustangs!

Our "Meet the teacher night" was a huge success and our school is running smoothly. As we start a new year I would like to cordially invite you to our first 2016-2017 "Family Literacy Night" September 7, 2016 from 3:25-4:45 p.m. We will have Pharr Memorial Library Personnel in hand to allow parents and students to obtain a library card. The information needed is a driver license or identification card from the parent as well as a utility bill. We want to sign up as many of our students to their community library. Please help me by spreading the word with your students and parents.

Super Henry Ford Readers!

Super Readers stopped by the library to pick up a copy of "bright summer reader logs" during "Meet the Teacher Night" and were also taken a pictures as "Super Readers."

Super Readers were also given a Free Bookmark so they will never loose their super reading pages ever again!
