Library Notes
As we celebrate Catholic Schools Week and Families visit classrooms and marvel at displays of students’ learning pursuits, we remain grateful for the family support of our varied school initiatives. And while the Library has no classroom cadre of specific students, pursuit of reading by all remains the welcome product of student interest and parental encouragement. With this in mind, we invite all to check out the Hallway Display of New Books now available for our students.

Library Notes
With so many of us battling the elements healthwise, relaxing with a book may not be what pleasurably suits us. While not a health remedy, families are advised to seek out a book-based film, via DVD or through streaming on one of our viewing devices. Once able, check out the book and have an enjoyable and more expansive experience. Be Well.
