Welcome To The Library! Fill Out This Form To Be Sent Some Good Book Recommendations -- Audio Books Or eBooks Which Can Be Found On Sora Overdrive!

Greetings From Mrs. Tetschner

Hello Patriots!

Welcome to summer!  We have made it through an unusual and sometimes difficult year.  I am so proud of everyone.  

Do not to stop reading.  Sora is available to us 24/7 and all summer long.  

One of the best things we can do to keep our minds sharp and ready for school in the Fall is to read.  This is why I am encouraging everyone to read at least six books this summer.

If you need a good book recommendation, fill out the Microsoft form in the box above this one, and I will send you an email with a few suggestions.

Be safe! Have fun!  Keep reading!

See you soon,

Mrs. Tetschner
