What do you like better, the book or the movie?  Join us at "Beyond the Book Ends" where you can discover the differences and similarities between both!  At the end of every month, we will gather inside the library to sit back, eat popcorn, and watch a movie.


Sign up with Ms. Castro in the Library.  Books will be read independently. Dates for watching a book's related movie will vary and will be announced 1 week prior to viewing.  Students must return parent permission slip to participate in this club.
