Dont’ Stop Reading! Library Books are Available During Lunch Throughout Milestones Testing!!

Great News!

Don’t stop reading during Milestones testing!

Mrs. Quintana and Mrs. Gambrell will be in the cafeteria during Milestones testing to provide book reservations and check-outs to students. It’s a great idea to have books to read during testing downtimes, or when you complete your testing for the day.

We will have a cart of books for you to check out, but you may also complete the following link to reserve books to pick up in the mornings before school, or during your lunch period.

This library service will be available during lunch periods throughout Milestones testing.
