    And the Winner is…. Mrs. Darby's Class!

    In December, we had our very first celebration to reward the class that returned the highest number of books this so far. Darby’s Doodlebugs did a phenomenal job of returning their books! This class was rewarded with treats to enjoy! Another class will be rewarded soon!

    Remember students are chosen randomly to receive a prize if they are caught with their books in their backpacks or if they return it to the library on their scheduled day of class. So far, I’ve given out lots of prizes to those kids who keep their books safe!  Please do not eat or drink around our library books and make sure water bottles don't leak while transported in backpacks.
