People have been asking when the next Buy One Get One Free Bookfair will be and it's almost here!  Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, the 17th of March, will be the start of the BOGO Bookfair.  It will be here in the library ALL the next week, too, until Thursday the 25th.  Middle school will be scheduled to come in with their science teachers, but anyone COME WITH A PASS during class and lunch.  We will also be open after school.  It's BUY ONE GET ONE FREE FOR ANYTHING!  Don't forget to save your money, because books make good Easter presents.  See you at the library!

A Through G?

Students, do you know what A-G Requirements are?  You are missing out if you don't!
Check out this link and see what you need to be doing RIGHT NOW and through high school in order to get into college.  What you do now matters!  A-G Requirements for College

If you can recite the A-G to Ms. Whelpton after school, you will get a raffle ticket to enter a contest for prizes! You might win a free book (courtesy of First Book) or a  flash drive!  Why not try it? You need to know A-G anyway.  The raffle will be on Valentine's Day.
