The CCHS Library was thrilled to host a Halloween Read-Aloud with our very own Life Skills class and some very precious students from Friendship Elementary School. Our storytime featured guest reader, Ms. Ann Carter, and the classic creepy poem “The Cremation of Sam McGee.” The students listened intently and then enjoyed Halloween snacks. A huge thanks to Ms. Ann Carter for volunteering her time and to our teachers and students of these classes. What a “treat” it was to spend time together, hear a great story, and make new friends. Happy Halloween everyone!

We were so excited to host breakfast today for Mrs. Giles’ ESL class. At
the end of last school year, the class completed a research project to
determine the number of Spanish titles in the library’s collection
compared to the number of students in our school. They then wrote me a
wonderful letter requesting some titles they would like to read in
Spanish. After searching, I was able to find those titles. How delighted I
was to see them checking them out today. Thank you to Mrs. Giles and her
students for a great project and the lesson that sometimes all you have to
do is ask! Happy reading everyone!
