(2011-2012 Edition)

I cannot believe that the school year is about to come to a close! It has been such a busy year in the Sonntag library. It's hard to believe that it is almost time to say goodbye to our wonderful 5th graders. Even though the year is coming to a close, summer reading is just heating up.
