Library Visits

We have been visiting the library. Each student is allowed to check out 3 library books to place in their workshop boxes in the classroom. We are going to wait a few weeks to take a book home.

Keep sending in your BoxTops - we had a record-breaking month in August!

TONIGHT is elementary night at the BHS football game! Students can run on the field before the game.
