This year, the librarian will be hosting competitive reading contests. The kindergarten and first grade classes will compete in the Texas 2 X 2 listening division. Second graders will compete in the Silver and Gold Seal division, and third, fourth, and fifth graders will compete in the Bluebonnet division. The classes (in each division) that make the most progress by the end of the semester will win a popsicle party.

The Junior Library Crew

The Junior Library Crew (JLC) is comprised of a group of Shugart students who volunteer their time to help in the library.  The 2015-2016 helpers include: Onene Gomba, Corey Kirkling, Alyssa Skinner, Marissa Torres and Julian Valenzuela. We appreciate these students for helping to keep our library organized. Check out their picture on our Volunteer page.
