    Third grader, Bill, loves the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey.  Bill gave Mr. Kleyn this amazing illustration of the legendary Captain Underpants to hang up in the Library.  Nice illustration, Bill!  Captain Underpants saves the day!

    Second graders are researching frogs in the library.  Using books, an online encyclopedia, and websites, they are researching and taking notes to find answers to key questions they brainstormed as a group.  From their notes, they will create and share a Keynote presentation on school laptops.
