LIBRARY

Recently, the Library Media Center has sent overdue notices to homeroom teachers two times. All overdue books must be returned to the LMC by this Friday. If a book is lost, students must speak with the library staff to pay for the replacement cost of their books. Remember, the homeroom who is the first to have no overdue books will win a directed study in the library media center where they can play games and enjoy the activities of Encore. See the Library Staff if you have any questions. Thank you and happy reading!
