Every Monday Matters: A social service club that takes place during school

In May, the district librarians were awarded a grant to buy books for our libraries to support the new science curriculum and to create simple environmental/social service activites for our students that will help them make connections to what they learn. We are hoping that they will learn that together our small changes can make a big, and postive, impact. We will be implementing these activities in the library during the last week of the month. We would welcome any suggestions and ideas that you think would support this project! Thanks!
