Celebrate School Library Month all April long at the Vincent L. Triggs ES Library!
We're "Making Learner Connections" with "Brain Breaks" in the Library! SBAC testing starts soon. Remember, the library is open and a great place to unwind and relax! We've set up an SBAC "Brain Break" area with a collection of easy and fun picture books. 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers can send students down on testing days (2 or 3 at a time from 9:30-3:00) for 5-10mins to sit in our cozy chairs and enjoy a book or 2!
The Triggs ES Library Now has EBOOKS!
