Library Volunteers

Welcome to the Ride library where reading is most important! My name is Tammy Fishman and I am the new librarian and am looking forward to meeting all of you. In the next few weeks, we will be reaching out for volunteers needed in the library. I hope you will consider volunteering in the library. It is an awesome place to volunteer and I can't wait to work with all of you!

Sally K. Ride Book Drive

We are now collecting books to build our classroom libraries. If you have books that your kids have out grown or no longer read, please consider donating them to the school. Single books or boxes of books are welcome! You may drop off at front office for your convenience.

Box Tops

Please consider getting the free box top app! It’s super easy to earn extra money for our school by using the app - and it tells you where specials are running. For example, there is currently “Earn 50 Bonus Box tops” running at Walmart through Jan 31st.
