REMINDER TO STUDENTS:   You all have the ability to access your student library information on the online catalog.  You can check what book you have checked out and when the book is due.  Your LOGIN should be first name.last name.  You may not have set up a password so it may ask for your patron barcode number.  Stop in the library and get that information from Mrs. Hanson.


Please make sure you check out all library books, don't just take them from the shelf. It is very frustrating when someone wants a book that the online catalog says is available but then not on the shelf because some has just taken it.  Please remember there are other people in the school who might want to read that book also.


For the safety of the kids, please do not allow your child to play on the grassy area next to the concession stand during football games.
