LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER UPDATE
Last Tuesday the faculty book club met to discuss the book we read during the summer. What Made Maddy Run by Kate Fagan resonated with all of us as Maddy could easily have been one of our students. We invited School Adjustment Counselor, Russ Becker and he added valuable insight to our discussion. We would like to offer the book to any parents who would like to read it. Your student can check it out under his/her name.
