    Welcome to the Learning Commons!

    The books are so happy the children will be returning to school very soon! I look forward to seeing everyone in the library during the first week of school. Students, 1st-4th, will begin checking out books during the second week of school. Kindergarteners will check-out books near the end of September. We will take a few weeks to learn how to take care of books and basic library procedures.


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


    Happy Reading!

    Mrs. Dixon
