Principal Dave Ritchie Our library is well-used by our K-5 students and staff, but most of our collection is tired and outdated. Our students need access to awesome books they'll love, and to books that support their learning. Our staff members need great books to help them teach important skills and ideas. To support them we need a serious update in our entire collection. Adopt-a-School allows us to make the best choices for our school community because they let us decide which books to add to our library.
