Sometimes a good book just needs to be shared!
The first class of the year was the entire 6th grade! Students checked out mystery books as well as a few extra. It was great to hear about their summer activities and watch them recommend books to each other!
Ms. Schrader's and Mrs. Zogby's class came in for library orientation and to check out books. Each class developed guidelines to "Make SSR Time Special".
