You can pick up a copy of the map at the library, or you can download a copy from your Pershing Library Canvas page and print your own. We will take entries until Friday, September 3rd.
Books in the "Dog House"
To go along with our "Paws for Books" theme for September, we will also have a display of books that staff and parents think should be in the dog house for various reasons. Students are encouraged to read our "dog house" books and write a short statement about why those books shouldn't have to stay in the dog house. Every time a student reads one of the "dog house" books and turns in a card, they will get to choose a pet-themed prize.
