Thank you from the Library!
Thank you to all of our students, parents, grandparents, staff and volunteers for helping to make our November Scholastic Book Fair a success. Our sales were over $4600.00. As a result we were able to keep lots of great books for our school library. Congratulations to the following students who completed the activity pages and won a Scholastic $10.00 gift certificate to spend at the fair: Serena (JK), Lincoln (Gr. 2), Abby (4/5 MFI), Jane (4/5 MFI) and Louise (8A). Also congratulations to the winners of our Family Event draw held on Friday morning. Jack and Ms. Mumdizjan each won $25.00 worth of books from Scholastic.

Thank you also to the families who have sent in books for use in the library. Season's Readings and Happy Holidays from the library.
