•    MEDIA CENTER BOOKS WISH LIST (updated 10/13/2020)

    Many thanks to you—parents and students—who have donated wish list books to the media center. The most recent donations were AWESOME! If you’ve got a new or gently used copy of any of the following books, please consider dropping it in the box outside the main office lobby.  And let us know when you do, so we can thank you properly. Top book-wishes are highlighted in bold. We're checking out physical books to students (and, via Sora, students can check out ebooks as well) even when students are off-site. Spartans love to read!
