CALENDAR - Added Details!!!!

Dec.16 - RtI checks with Tonya

Dec. 17 - Michael P. White, Illustrator presentation in the library.

The programs for K-1 are 30 min. long (shorter attention span!) and 45 min. for grades 2-5. We are going to have the presentations during each grade level's special time in the library. I've discussed it with the special team and they have graciously agreed and offered to come to the library to help out, so each team will still have their conference time. For grades K-1, we may need to have something else to occupy the remaining minutes of their specials time since their presentation is only 30 min. I'll discuss it with you when I return - Raschel
