A Letter to Our Teachers
Thank you all for your continued support and use of the media center. We truly appreciate it! Thank you for doing your best to return library books before 8:10am each day. This really makes the start of our day begin smoothly. Also, please continue to encourage students to return overdue books so that they may continue to check out new materials. Lastly, if any classes need access to computers or help with class research, please come in to sign up for the research lab. We will be glad to assist or offer lessons whenever we can.
If you have any needs, suggestions, or special requests please let us know! We are ready to help.
