 Everyone had a great time during out Celebrate Literacy Week! We had guest readers come to each class and share a favorite book. Thank you to all our volunteers, we couldn't have done it without you. There were daily drawings for prizes and don't forget about the bookmark contest. We have all our great entries displayed in the media center for all to see. It was wonderful to see how excited our students were about sharing their work.

This month we are excited to share our love of reading with our students. Our newsletter highlights some of our favorite stories to share this month. I shared with everyone that "I'll Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch was  my favorite story to read to my own children when they were in elementary school. Come check out a copy from our media center today but be careful it is a tear jerker!

Parent PI Books

  The Elementary Media Centers offer the following books that you may read and take AR tests on for infomational hours.  I recommend  you read them earlier in the year as they can be hard to find the closer we get to May!  Please note:  you must have a student enrolled in the Elementary School to read and test on these books for PI time.  The media centers at the Middle and High Schools have books for parents of their students.
