    There will be two book fairs per school year. One in the fall and one in the spring. Please look for information about these events in your child's weekly folders for dates and times.

    New books are available for checkout. We are always adding to the collection. If you or your child has a book or series they would love to see added, please add your suggestion(s) to the *form and we will see if they are available and can be added to the school library.
