If your family does not wish to keep you child's novels at the conclusion of our units, please consider donating to our classroom library! We are about 20 novels short of being able to provide novels for all of our students in need! Any help is appreciated.
If your student is an avid reader, make sure they are logging their completed books on Ms. Dixon's 2017-2018 reading log! This will make them eligible for prizes and fun trips throughout the school year! Just click the link below.
