Today was AMAZING- the PG Kindergarten staff got to see so many of our students today. We are hoping a grant from the BEF will come through, but we couldn't miss the opportunity to put books into the hands of our students to have to read over the summer. The students were so excited to be able to pick out 3 new books and 2 gently used books to have to enjoy over and over again this summer. The Book Mobile warmed our hearts and we will cherish the memories we made today!❤😊
