    A Note from the Library

    In order to have all our books collected in the library by the end of the year, Mrs. Wilson has created a schedule for all students and parents for library book returns:

    May 10: Grade 6 students should have only two books on their library record before leaving for camp.

    May 28-31: All students must have only one book on their library record; they have the option of trading their book for a new one.

    June 3-6: June 7: 

    All students can have one book on his/her/their account.
    All books and library materials checked out to students, staff, and parents are due.

    Thank you for helping our library collect books!
