Mrs. Owens and the Library Club would like to thank all of the students, teachers, administrators, donors, and community supporters who helped to make this school year so successful. From the Scholastic Book Fair in the fall to the Social Studies and Science Fairs in the spring, we have had a busy and productive year. We have added more than one hundred new books to the library collection and continued our literacy initiatives with Career Projects and the Volunteer Reader Program. We also want to say a special “thank you” to donors such as The Lisa Libraries of New York, The Historic New Orleans Collection, Claiborne Parish Farm Bureau, Adoptaclassroom.org, and the White-Reinhardt Foundation for sponsoring many of our programs this year.
