Spring Book Drive

Do you have some books that are looking for a new home? Well now is your chance to donate them to a great cause! Our school will be accepting used book donations for the Greenville Literacy Association during the month of April. We will have a friendly competition between the boys and girls to see who can donate the most books. There will be a pink box for the girls and a blue box for the boys located in the main lobby for all donations. Thanks for your support!

April is National Poetry Month

During the month of April, we will celebrate poetry in the media center. All month long, students may write original poems and submit them to the media center for a chance to read them on the morning show. Poem in Your Pocket Day is on April 18th. On this day, students can carry their favorite poem in their pocket for a chance to win a prize. At the end of the month, we will have a "Poetry Picnic" during all media center classes.
