Library News

The September Book Fair was a big success!  Thanks to all students, parents and staff for your generous support.  It was great to see so many children excited about purchasing books and reading.   I would like to thank Ms. Ayala, Mrs. Elwell, Mr. Rizutti, Mr. Yamala, Mr. Amato, Mrs. Jhingree and the many teachers who helped with the Book Fair this year.  I couldn't have done it without you!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the library raffle.  Congratulations to the lucky winners:  Janiyah Jones in Pre-KP, Ester Souza-Sena in KG, Alkan Onur in 2G, Maja Golik in 4D, Angelina Lominy in 5C and Imaan Saqib in 5H.

The Fourth and Fifth Grade Book Club has begun. The first book selection is Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume.  I'm excited to share this classic, funny story with our students!
