    Classes come to the Learning Center on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week. It is important for students to remember to bring back their books on these days. Students can come to the Learning Center any day of the week to return, renew, and checkout books.

    This week students reviewed the expectations in the Learning Center. 2nd and 3rd graders reviewed how to use the catalog to locate books. Kindergarteners and 1st graders talked about their favorite places to read and we read a book called The Best Place to Read by Debbie Bertram & Susan Bloom.
