Staff Appreciation Treats:

This year we went BIG. There was a group of dedicated individuals who came together to elicit donations and provide our staff with something special everyday to show appreciation for dedication and committment to our students. View the link to check out staff treats for the week.

From the Librarian:

May 10th – Last day of checkout.

May 13th – All books are due from students and parents. Last day of ABC rotation.

May 20th – All books are due from teachers.

Please do not wait until the last day of school to return your books. Ms. Luna and I will need time to check-in and shelve all books. Thank you!
