Volunteers Needed

Floyd Families,

WE NEED YOU! The Floyd Library Media Center is off to a great start. Floyd’s library is the heart of the school and abuzz with daily activity. Students are researching, learning new technology tools, and READING.

Can you volunteer once a week? Can you volunteer once a month? Even if it’s just three times during the year for a couple of hours, you’ll make an enormous contribution to our school, your school.

The ability to read – and perhaps of equal importance the love of reading – is arguably the most critical facility for which our students will depend for their future academic success, economic independence, and even personal happiness.                                                                                       Today’s Readers=Tomorrow’s Leaders, READ ON!  -PJChaney
