Hi everyone!

Thank you to everyone who returned a library book during locker cleanout!! If you find any books at home over the summer, you can still drop them off in the office over the summer.

I want you all to know that if you have signed out a library book or two or maybe a Playaway from before we were closed, that I have extended all of the due dates. Check out the information at the bottom about Every student has an account and it is great way to learn keyboarding skills! In the meantime, if you have any questions or want to say hello, please e-mail me at:

Hope to see you soon!
