What's going on in the library?

Intermediate students have cast their votes for the Towner Award, a Washington State children's choice award for non-fiction. Our winner was Neighborhood Sharks with 81 votes. Guess what? Neighborhood Sharks also won the overall competition after all libraries submitted their votes!

Students have also worked hard on reading for Accelerated Reader points.  Several students have passed the 100 point mark.   At the end of the year, we will have a Principal's Party for students who reach their grade goal. 

2nd grade: 20 points
3rd grade: 30 points
