Students and Parents,

Wow! May is here and we only have four more weeks of school. Hard to believe. I have really enjoyed being in the library this year and I'm loving the student excitement we have about books! We are getting more new books over the next few weeks. I have ordered all the books that students have put on the Summit Wish List and I will be creating a Google Form to put on our website for students to add to our wish list during the summer. Keep checking Summit's website for updates.

In April, we had record sales with our Scholastic Book Fair. Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, students and teachers that helped make it a huge success. It was so fun and I loved seeing the students excited about buying books to take home! We will have another Scholastic book fair in the fall.

Our last day to check out books will be May 14th and then all books need to be turned in by May 24th. Emails will be sent out again to remind students to turn in all library books. We have several books that have been marked lost, please bring those books back to Summit's library and the fine will be removed.

Thanks again for making my first year in the library so wonderful. I wish everyone the best!


Mrs. Williams

And the winners are...
