News from the Library

In 5th grade library class, students chose a topic related to Exploration (to go along with their Social Studies and Reading Curriculum) Using PebbleGo Next and books, they had to identify a problem that their explorers faced . We used the Makers on the Move cart to design a solution to their problem. Thanks to Mrs. Logue for helping with this project as well!

Volunteers for the School Store needed!

Attention 6th graders and parents -

Thank you to those who have volunteered and have worked the school store!

As a reminder, the school store is opened every Friday morning from 8:45-9:05AM. It is run by 6th grader(s) and his/her parent(s). There are still open slots from mid-January until the end of the school year. Take a look at the SignUp Genius below and see if you can lend a hand!

May Fair Chairs needed!

As discussed previously, we are still in need of a committee chair or co-chairs for the May Fair. To make the May Fair a success, planning begins in January. Therefore, we are coming down to the wire! If there are no takers for chair and/or co-chairs, the May Fair will not take place this spring. If you have any questions about the role of chair/co-chair you may contact Amanda Owen at

If you are interested, please contact Jill Walton at by January 17th.

Thanks for considering!
