We are excited to share that the classroom library is up and running in 7TH Grade ELA. All library contracts were due back. Your child may not check out a book without a contract on file. Also, if the books are not checked back in according to stated procedures, your child may incur a fine that they are responsible for paying before they can resume using the library. We will begin issuing book overdue notices in December. Encourage your child to finish reading their books within a week or two. Also, some students are opting to abandon books because they are "boring." Please encourage them to read books in their entirety. Lastly, happy reading!
