Collectively students read over 5000 pages Tuesday at our read in! (And consumed 2 gallons of juice, 4 gallons of hot chocolate, one bag of marshmallows, two shopping bags full of popcorn, 4 loaves of pumpkin bread, 2 pounds of nuts, 20 apples, and 40 donut holes. Phew!) Pictures and comments are HERE.
The first 45 students who turn in their permission slips will bring their snugglies, blankets, favorite stuffed animal, a favorite book, or check one out from the shelves of the library for an afternoon of nothing but reading on October 17th.

The times they are a changing! ! Half of the most frequently challenged books were actually banned in 2016, which is much higher than the usual rate of about 10% of titles being removed from the institution where they are challenged. Students are invited to celebrate the first amendment and check out a challenged book! We have a shelf of good ones in our library. Celebrate the Freedom to Read!
TEXTBOOK CHECKOUT will be the first week of school. Freshman: in CCE class; Sophomores in MWH; Juniors in English; Seniors in Gov’t /Econ. See HERE for exact schedule.
Students will check out all their books for all their classes at one time. They must have ID (or a picture of their ID barcode) and their schedule. They should have cleared their record of books and charges at registration. Having charges or books still out will delay textbook check out. If you have questions feel free to contact Sunny or Chris in the library.
Sign up HERE to help during Textbook Checkout 8/30-9/11 or if you wish to be a regular (weekly, bimonthly) volunteer sign up through PTA Volunteer Form or send Sunny an email.
