LIBRARY DONATIONS

Recently books have been donated to the library in the memory of Connie Lewis. These include: Strange, Amazing, and Mysterious Places by William Burroughs from the Platz Family; and American Spirit from the Erwin Family.

Books make a lasting tribute to the memory of our loved ones. If there is someone that you would like to memorialize in this way, please contact Denise Brown, Library and Media Specialist at 323-5272.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our library benefactors, Garry Lewis, Chrissy Owen, the David Erwin Family, and the Larry Platz family. We offer our thanks to these contributors.

The library is open to the public Monday through Friday during school hours and at other times through special arrangements. We invite you to come in and browse our stacks.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

Progress is being made on the construction of the new elementary building. Over excavation of the building site is complete with the excess fill placed west of the tennis courts.

Relocation and temporary installation of utilities is also complete. The construction crew is in the process of pouring the footings and will soon be ready to pour the floor slab.

We apologize for the parking inconvenience that our construction project has caused and ask for your continued patience.
