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.
