Calling All Parents, Mrs. Wingo Needs Your Help!

The Library is in need of A.R. Store donations. The Store is held 4 times a year. Grades K-5 participate in the Store as a reward for points earned using the A.R. program, successfully. Donated items include gently used toys, games/puzzles (all pieces included), or stuffed animals. Our students appreciate all Store donations!! They love “shopping” the A.R. Store by trading their earned A.R. points for prizes.
Just ask them!! You will see!! ☺

**All donations will be appreciated and can be sent to the Library, throughout the year.**

The Library and PTO sponsors a “free book giveaway” honoring Dr. Seuss’s birthday, the 1st week of March. This nationwide celebration is called “Read Across America”. The PTO Reading Committee helps the Library in this celebration. Mrs. Kim Williamson is the Reading Chairperson for this year. We are in need of “gently used” chapter book donations, appropriate for elementary school children, Gr. 2-5.

**Any donations will be appreciated and can be sent to the Library, throughout the year.**

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Library at 373-2610. Mrs. Kim Williamson, PTO Reading Chairperson, can be contacted at

We look forward to an exciting year of reading in the Library!! We appreciate your support and any donations you may be able to give. Many thanks!!

Welcome to a great new year and new system!

A Hundred Years From Now

"A hundred years from now, it will not even matter what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in, or even the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different  because I was important
in the life of a CHILD!"
