  • Night at the Museum Date Set

    Mark your calendars -- the Night at the Museum will be held on Tuesday, April 4.  The night will feature talks by literary characters, the science fair, and displays of students' artwork.  The Hall of Literary Characters will come alive when you place change in the container at their feet.  All proceeds will go Scholastic's All for Books, which provides books for children in impoverished areas.  Don't forget to start saving your change!

  • Thank you, PTA!

    The PTA generously allocated Scholastic dollars for the purchase of new library books.  Some were purchased from the Book Fair, and others will be coming from the Scholastic catalog.  Can't wait for you to see them!

    In addition, the PTA has paid to purchase book club books (Number the Stars and Pax) for the 4th and 5th grade activity period classes on Thursday.  We're loving them already!

  • Library Needs

    If you have tissues or boxes of new crayons you'd be willing to donate to the library, it would be most appreciated. We seems to use both very quickly! Thank you!

  • Volunteers Needed
    The library is a very busy place, and in need of several good volunteers.  If you like to help in the library, whether with classes, checking in and out, book repair, or shelving, just email Mrs. Bott and let her know.  We'd love to have you in our library!
