On Wednesday, May 23 during the School Field Day, we are going to have a "Used Book Exchange" in the library.

Here's how it will work. During the week of May 14, each child may bring up to 3 gently used books from home. The student council will pick these books up from the classrooms and record the number of books each student brings, up to 3. More than 3 books can be brought to school, but they will be considered a donation to the fair and greatly appreciated. We are especially on the look-out for higher-level chapter books.

Parents, please check the books the children bring to school to see if they are age appropriate and are also ones that you are willing to exchange.

On May 23, each student who donates a book will visit the library to pick out "New to Me" books. IF there are enough books, the exchange will then be opened up to other students.

Hopefully, this fair will promote summertime reading and will be another fun activity during Field Day. Thanks for your help with this.
