Students worked up a monster of an appetite Friday!
The Queen of Hearts. Check out this card! A library card, that is. This cutie is ready to read!
Please be sure your student is returning library/teacher books or paying for books they have damaged. Taking care of their obligations allows the library to repurchase the book so others may enjoy them as well. (And they are needed for school assignments!)
