    Welcome to the Learning Commons!

    Be sure to ask your students what they are reading. Talking about reading is a great way to learn about your child's interests.

    Thank you for supporting our Book Fair! I will be purchasing many new titles to add to our library!

    Also, be sure and ask your 3rd-5th graders about SORA. This is an ebook platform provided free from our district. The app can be downloaded from the app store or it can be accessed below. The login is your student's id# and id#-intials. 


    Happy Reading!

    Mrs. Dixon
