Summer Reading Program at Local Libraries!
We encouraged all our students to sign up at their local public library for the Summer Quest Reading Program.  Not only can you enjoy many good books, but the students can earn prizes by reaching their reading goals.  The library also offers many activities and programs for all ages in the summer.  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.

We are thrilled our students want to keep reading and learning with the FREE resources at our local public library!

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. 

We had two book distributions this year.  For more information about R.I.F. see

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!

PebbleGo Database!
Marumsco Hills has subscribed to four databases in PebbleGo!  Their titles are PebbleGo Animals, PebbleGo Earth and SpaceSocial Studies, and PebbleGo Biographies.

Each database is designed for student researchers of any age. "Enriched with spoken-word audio, text highlighting and audio and video clips, PebbleGo builds a foundation of research skills for every learner." - PebbleGo.com

Students were given a bookmark with the username and password so they can access the databases at home at anytime. 

Click on this link to get to the PebbleGo login page.

The link is also located under "Student Links" (see below on the right-hand side).  Happy researching!
