Please see below message from the Elementary PTO regarding Books on Wheels next week. The PTO has decided that we will not be having Books on Wheels next week on Wednesday, February 14th, as it is Valentine's Day!! That means the kids will have to carry their valentines in and out, so who needs to worry about carrying money into school for books or carrying additional books out of school! Plus the Ducky Valentine's will be leaving the nest that day too... so much excitement for just one day!! So we will take a break from Books on Wheels for February 14th and then return again on February 28th after Mid-Winter Break!!! Thank you so much for all of your support!
