*Thank you to Laura McCamant for coordinating another successful Book Nook this week!  We had our best book nook turnout this week thanks to all of the supportive donations and all of the interested student shoppers.  Our strongest need continues to be for chapter books, but elementary level picture books are always welcomed as well.  Please do not send in any preschool level books.  Book contributions can be dropped off in the book box located in the school office.  The next Book Nook will be in April.  See Final Book Nook for more information.
