Our amazing librarian, Ms. Hoeflich, can purchase hundreds and hundreds of new books for the library and keep the ROARing Readers machine stocked all year long! The PTA also made sure all students were able to purchase a new book from the Fair! This is amazing and we are so proud to be part of a school that comes out in so many ways to support the students and staff.
