This year Central Manor will doing a Book Swap. Students are being asked to bring in books they have already read to swap for new ones to read this summer! We are collecting books this week, May 17-20. Books should be given to classroom teachers in the morning. Students will be able to choose 1 book for each one donated, up to 5 books. They will then be given book coupons and on May 23, 24 & 25 each class will go to the book swap to choose books. Please try to encourage your student to bring in books appropriate for their reading level, so we have age appropriate books across all grade levels. It is our hope that each student will leave Central Manor for summer break with a new book to read! If you have any questions please contact the office at 872-1401.

Our class will be going to the book swap on May 23. 🙂
