    A huge shout out to the book fair volunteers! Thank you so much for all of your help setting up, running the register, and tearing down.

    Grab your bookmarks... The RMS library is launching a new reading program!

    SPPS Middle School Libraries were awarded a grant for $6,125 each to buy new books for their libraries. The catch? Mrs. K cannot spend a penny of that money without the help of students. 

    Student Choice Reading Program

    Students can help Mrs. K choose books for the library by reading and writing a review to post in Destiny (mylibrary.spps.org). For every review a student writes, they can pick out a new book for their school library AND be the first one to read it.

    But wait! There's more! After 50 reviews are written at our library, RMS be given an additional $700 to buy Makerspace items from a menu choices for the Makerspace funds for the library.
