Thanks to everyone who purchased books at the book fair.  The fair was a big success and we are getting many new books for our library because of your purchases!

The Silas Bronson Library is holding their Annual Poetry Contest for Waterbury students in grades 1-5. The children have been given the rules and grade level themes during their library classes.  A registration form must be attached to the back of the poem.  Students can get the form from me or online at  All poems are due to the library by Monday, April 23rd.  I will happily deliver any poems given to me by Friday, April 13th, the day before April vacation.  The poems will not be returned so please remember to save a copy of your child's poem.  The winners will be announced in May.  Good luck to all students who enter!
