Great Websites for Kids
Are you looking for one spot on the web to find well-reviewed websites geared for kids? If so, you may want to take a look at Great Websites for Kids! A committee made up of members of the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, selected these websites.
The websites range from Animals to Literature to History to Reference, and much more. Check a few out!
Reading is FUNdamental!
Our school participates in the Reading is Fundamental program (R.I.F.). Through this program, every student in our school receives a free book. The books are provided through the support of the U.S. Department of Education, corporations, foundations, community organizations, and thousands of individuals.
In October we will have our first distribution of the year. For more information about R.I.F. see http://www.rifnova.org/about.html
Public Library Card Drive!!
September is Library Card Sign-Up month! We know the students and their families will enjoy many great services and books at the Prince William Public Library. Potomac Library is the closest branch to our school. You can go online to find the library card application, or stop by Potomac Library in person, to apply for a library card.
