Practice is from 2:30-3:15. Students will need a ride home from practice. Please contact me if your student is interested in joining the band.

All students are encouraged to participate in the Accelerated Reader program. Students can read books from the library, take a test at school about the book, and receive prizes for reading.

Students in 3rd-8th grades can fill out book recommendation forms on any library book that they recently read, is grade level appropriate, and is a book that they have never read from the school library. Students will get to put their name in a raffle for a $5 Barnes and Noble gift card. The next raffle drawing will be on Sept. 30th.

Please consider donating to the library if there are any new or slightly used books at home, that your student is no longer reading.
