There has been an awesome response to the book fair! Our goal was $2,000 and we have reached that goal already. Morgan Elementary Library will receive 55% of money raised in Scholastic bucks to be used towards new books for the library. I am so pleased with this and can't wait to start ordering! I plan to have the book fair open one more day, Tuesday, September 3, for any last-minute purchases. The fair will be closed at the end of the school day on Tuesday. Thank you to everyone for your support of our school library.
My name is Mrs. Kelly Veatch. This will be my 21st year of teaching at Morgan Elementary. I am so excited to be a school librarian. I love reading and books, and I love to share my passion of reading with the students at Morgan Elementary! I am looking forward to a wonderful school year.
