SCHOOL’S (ALMOST) OUT – TURN IN YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS!
Time to round up all of those books and get them back to the Library before the school year is over. The Library isn’t accepting returns this week due to Book Fair, but we’ll start taking all returns (overdue or not) bright and early on Tuesday, May 31. Your student’s teacher has an up-to-date list of all overdue books, so please check with him or her if you’re not sure of your student’s status. An important note: You won’t be able to get your child’s final report card of the year until all overdue books are turned in; or, if lost, paid for at the school library. Have more questions? Send an email to Laura Baedeker (mom of Nora, 3rd grade): . Thank you!
