Fall Book Fair

This was the MOST SUCCESSFUL Book Fair in school history! We nearly doubled in profits from any book fair in the past. I am so grateful to work with such an amazing community of readers. Thank you to Mrs. Mazac, Mrs. Dahill, Mrs. Soudry, Mrs. Juettner, Ms. Matusek, Ms. Farber, Mr. Garcia, and Mr. Nyc for bringing their classes to the Book Fair. Also, HUGE shoutout to NJHS for purchasing books that will go to Dell Children's Hospital. A total of 41 classes visited which is about 1, 230 students. Our Spring Book Fair will be held April 1-5, 2019.

Friendly Reminders!

The library is open 8am-4pm and during EXCEL.

(Please only send one student at a time per class for crowd control.)

The mini-lab has 8 desktop computers that will print.

If a student needs to print IN COLOR they MUST have a note from their teacher.

Students are to sign in, conduct library business, and go back to class.

EXCEL is not meant to be a time to send students who need to complete work or stay the entire time.
