Students and Parents,


The library has been busy with students checking out books and classes coming in for lessons and other activities. Mrs. Phagan's and Ms. Shirley's classes celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. day activities with us and we all enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate. Mrs. Cash's Art students participated in a walk through art gallery. It was great to see the amazing artwork of our students.


This month we will have research lessons with the 8th grade English classes, book talks with Literacy students and we are looking forward to Mrs. Broersma's Invention Convention.


Don't forget to turn in your library books. I will send reminders out again this month for books that are late or lost.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Williams
