    Parents: Here's how you can get involved.

    If you have any books about farms or cities, books about our apples or pumpkins you would like your child to share we would love to have them. If you have pictures or objects that begin with the letters Ii or Ll please send those in too. We use them for literacy circle (All items sent in from home will be safely stored in a ziploc baggie with your child's name on it until the end of the month and returned to you).
