END OF YEAR INFORMATION
The last day to check out books from the Library is May 13, 2022 and all books are due by May 17, 2022. Please return all books checked out from our Library. If you are attending a District High School next school year and don't return your books, your fines will follow you.
If you have a clean library record (you can't owe any money to any school for library materials), you can enter the drawing for a free "Selfie-Stick". We will be giving away 5 for each grade level. See Mrs. Bender for details and to enter the drawing
Students will be keeping their chromebooks over the summer for use next fall. However, each device will need to be seen before the end of the year. Your device will then be renewed for next year's use. The dates we will be renewing the chromebooks are Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20. Make sure you bring your chromebooks to school with you on those days. You do not need to bring in the charger. If you are not able to present your chromebook for renewal you MAY be charged a $250 fine. More details to follow.
