On October 11 we began a new year of Reading Club. Students were so excited over their dedicated books from last year and are keen to dedicate another. So, be sure to Read, Read, Read each night and check off your form. The actual 50th Night of Reading is November 29. However, if you miss a night or two, that’s okay. The next form won’t be available until December 6.
If you lose your form you can print another – check under the “Reading Club” page.
Yay, we are into our second week of our regular library schedule!! Please see the schedule page to see when your library time is.
