Hey students! Did you know you can come to the library at 8:15 a.m. any morning with a pass from the "Town Meeting" to exchange books? Now you won't have to wait until your next library class.
We are doing "Breakfast and Books" once a week, when small groups of students from different classes are invited into the library with their breakfast before they report to class. We will do different activities with these students throughout the year.
This year students had the opportunity to play a library game entitled, “Order in the Library.” This game helps students learn how to place books on the shelf in the proper order. Students loved this game and can play it on their own at home. Click here for the link.
Country Project: Our students are completing a Latin American Country project. Please visit the links below to find information about your country. Please see Mrs. Dechon for any questions you may have!
