Welcome to our library! Happiness is… children’s eyes focused on the page captivated in a good story.
Our Library is online at the link below. It is a work in progress with the hopes of continuing to fill our shelves inspiring the students with a love for reading!
Your children are being taught to be independent seekers of titles, authors and information, to be familiar with genres of fiction and find meaning in non-fiction.
The more you read the more you know! Dive into a good book with your children and enjoy.
Our BOOK challenge has begun!
