Thank you for supporting the library!

Thank you to all the families, students and staff that came out to support the library at our Books, Inc. shopping night in December. The evening was a huge success! Thanks to our wonderful community, we earned $1200 for the library to buy new books for our Graham Bears to enjoy. A special shout out to the Performing Arts students and families for the wonderful music and singing and to Leadership for providing festive gift wrapping. Books, Inc. is a strong supporter of our school library, so please consider shopping at Books, Inc. Mountain View when you can.
