March Stats

(March Edition)

Happy spring, Blogsters! March was another amazingly busy month in the Sonntag library. As students prepared to go on spring break, they stopped by to check out new reads. In addition, Mrs. Mattei was given the distinct opportunity to share the awesomeness that is MackinVia with the 3rd grade students in the computer labs as they prepared for their research. The students and teachers were equally excited to dive into research using this new online database collection. Check out some other statistics for the month of March. Happy reading!
