MESSAGE FROM THE LIBRARY
Parents,
I am looking for volunteers in the Library to assist with re-shelving/organizing books. Additionally, during 'Check In' times, volunteers may be asked to help some students in find where their books should be placed on the shelves.

Any amount of time would be greatly appreciated!

If interested, parents/guardians can contact me at ncanny@fsd157c.org.

Thank you!
Nicole Canny, Librarian
