    THANK YOU TO:  Jamian, Jamie, Kile, Kennedy, Christian and Nathan for selling candy for the Fundraiser.  The school sold over $16,000.  We get 50% of the profit!  We all really appreciate your help.  Christian and Kennedy ordered books from the Firefly Book Club in March!  Jamie, Nathan, Jamir, Kennedy, Shakira, LeShean and Christian sent in titles of the books they read for the “Book It Program” in March.  They each received a free Pizza Hut coupon for a personal pan pizza!  Keep reading! I hope to see more families sending in the book titles in April!   Joseph & Jamir attended the “Readers as Leaders” workshop in March.
