Books 

We have created a wishlist of books and other materials that we would like to purchase throughout the school year. The list has been created with great thought by Ms. Schwartz and Ms. Newman and it includes student requests, teacher requests, parent requests, new award winning books, suggestions from social media and journals, and of course replacing of books that have been well loved.
