Media Center Makeover
Since June, I have been working on giving the Media Center a makeover. I used money from previous book fairs to purchase new tables, chairs and a new rug. This fall, HEPTO purchased 4 new bookshelves for the library. These are on casters and will be used in the center of the library. This will allow us to move the bookshelves to the sides and open up the Media Center for all the students to attend assemblies. The ultimate goal is to get all new bookshelves, but due to the cost, we will continue to fundraise throughout the year. The bookshelves that are there, we believe, are original to the building. Feel free to stop by and see all the changes. The feedback I have received has been great. Also check out the mural the students made in Art class with Mrs. Pendergrass.
Fall Book Fair
We had a great book fair in October!!!! This was my most successful book fair I have had! Woo hoo!

Books We Have Read
This year I am reading Shouting at the Rain by Lynda Mullaly Hunt to fourth and fifth grades. I read this over the summer, and loved it! It is about a young girl named Delsie, who lives with her Grandma on Cape Cod. Her best friend Brandy comes to stay on the Cape every summer, but this summer Brandy is acting different, and has a new friend, Tressa.
