Used Book Drive

Student Council and Green Team are sponsoring a used book drive. Students and parents are urged to donate books they no longer want or need. Students can turn books in to their Language Arts teachers, the library if Mrs. Cannon is here, Ms. Kessel, or Mrs. Dieterman. Any student that donates a book will receive a slip of paper to come back after the book drive, and choose a book of their choice from the donated books. Please encourage students to donate books they have already read and are willing to part with! This is a great chance to add books to our library and do a bit of recycling at the same time! Thanks in advance for your help and support. 

Per our Transportation Department:

Bus #70 is at maximum capacity and will not accept any additional riders.
