Appreciating Libraries!

I really enjoyed reading this article from today's Oregonian from our very own Kindergarten parent and author, Pauls Toutonghi.  It's very funny, insightful and acknowledges how valuable libraries are to us as thinkers and learners.

New Year, New Author Visits!

Once again, we are fortunate, thanks to Powell's, to offer two author visits in January.  On Monday January 25th, Pre-K through Primary students will meet with Salina Yoon  whose most recent book "Be A Friend" is set for release on January 5th.  

Margaret Haddix will join 3rd through 5th graders on Thursday, January 28th.  She will be promoting her new series, "Under Their Skin" and is the author of the "Among the Hidden" series and has also written for the 39 Clues project. She writes great thrillers/adventure. 

We will deliver the optional pre-order forms to the classes attending in the first week in January.
