Tomorrow, June 8, is our Summer Reading Book Swap! This is a fun way for kids to swap the books they have already read from their home collection for books that are new to them! Final donations will be accepted in the morning, and the swap will take place at 2:00 in the afternoon. Fifth grade swappers will select first, and then fourth, and finally third graders with book bucks - and after that, students may SHOP through the leftovers and purchase books for $.50 each, or 2 for a dollar! Please send your excited readers with some kind of a bag to bring home their treasures. We can't wait for the summer reading fun that starts with our annual book swap. Mrs. Smith
