WELCOME BACK 2nd and 3rd graders! WELCOME 1st graders!

Hope you are rested and ready to begin a new year of school.

A few reminders:

BOXTOPS FOR EDUCATION – please collect these and give them to your teacher each month. We can use boxtops to buy library books! This is a great way to recycle trash into treasure for all of us.

Remember, the library is in ORDER so that everyone can find what they want. It is everyone’s responsibility to keep it that way for your schoolmates! To do this, always use your SHELF MARKER.

MOST IMPORTANT – Read a lot this year! Find something that moves you, teaches you, confuses you, in other words HELPS YOU TO GROW YOUR MIND.
