Last week was a great week at William Carey……we celebrated Book Week!

The theme for this year was “Reading is my Superpower”.

Here in the library, we dressed as superheroes all week.

Did you see the library? It had a lot of great superhero displays.

The students in K-6 enjoyed having stories read to them by a “Mystery Teacher” after Recess each day . Thanks to the teachers who dressed up each day and made the experience so exciting for the students.

The Book Fair Arrived on Wednesday . We sold a lot of books which will enable us to purchase more for the library. Thank you.

The week ended with Grandparents Day and a Book Parade on Friday. We were blessed with beautiful weather. It was so nice to see so many Grandparents at school.

What a great week was Book Week 2019!
