HELP SAVE OUR BOOKS!

A note from our librarian, Mrs. Kumar:


Many of our books are already being returned damaged. I have a recommendation to protect our books from getting damaged and to increase their longevity.


Students can keep their borrowed books in a 2.5-gallon Hefty zipper bag. This will go a long way toward protecting books. You can buy a box of 12 bags at Wal-Mart for $2.98. I am also happy to accept donations of these large plastic bags for our library.


Thank you!

SNACK-TIME REQUESTS

Please help your child choose morning snacks that are conducive to eating and working at the same time. We kindly request that students bring only one snack for the morning and that it be simple to eat while reading, writing and working. We have so much learn in fourth grade! Thank you in advance for your help!
