What's Around the Corner?

Students in primary and lower el will have heard at least 5 of the North Carolina Children's Book Award (NCCBA) picture books by mid-March. Students will vote for their favorite book the week of March 14 - 18. If your children are trying to read all of the books on the list, they have until May 27 to turn in their list to receive a certificate.

March 2 is Read Across America Day. Make plans to celebrate reading as a family that day.
