April 2014 Library Update

The Library is In Full Bloom

April Flyer

Dear Genet Teachers,


April is National Poetry Month and I will teach poetry lessons and have poetry activities in library (K-5). I know you are all very busy, and so if you would like to collaborate in the name of poetry (or with anything else), please let me know.


The Robin is the One
That overflow the Noon
With her cherubic quantity—
An April but begun—

-Emily Dickinson


Happy Spring!


Sincerely,

Amanda Graves
