Library News

The Fourth and Fifth Grade Book Club will finish our book The Land of Stories:  The Wishing Spell this month.  The students have shown such enthusiasm for this book that we've decided to read the second book in the series entitled The Land of Stories:  The Enchantress Returns.  We will begin our new book in January.  

A reminder to students:  Please remember to read over winter break!  It's the perfect time to curl up with a good book and relax!  All clases will have book exchange the first week in January when we return from break. 

I wish everyone a wonderful holiday, a happy New Year and an enjoyable winter break!
