Help Build our AMSPA Library!
Bring a new or gently used book to your homeroom and/or ELA teacher (that's me!) by Friday, August 16th, 2019, and have the opportunity to wear jeans to school that same Friday! Our Booster Club is asking that we help build our AMSPA Library! Any book, and grade level!
Our classroom collection box is located in the back of the room on top of our Chromebook cart. Students can drop their book in the box and add their name to the jean list on the front board.
Thank you in advance for your support!
