Summer Reading and Math Assignments

Do you have any of these summer reading books at home? Please donate your old books and earn a FREE park or patio pass per book! Students that donate their old books will be eligible to receive a copy of the book for this summer. The more books we collect, the more we can give out! Students will bring the books to the main office to receive their pass and we will create a list for them to pick up a copy for this summer.
