It’s that time of the year!

Oh, it’s that time of the year! When everything is so hectic and I feel like you won’t be able to get everything done. But it’s also that time of the year when I really want to relax, visit good friends and just enjoy the snowy weather! Can you relate??

So this Christmas I wish you a relaxing, refreshing break from school and hope that you get to a chance to be with your family and friends and show them how much you care. Merry Christmas! Mrs. Hawkins

Spring is here!

I love all the seasons, but I especially love spring. I love the new green grass, trees that are budding and flowers! Something else I love about spring is that it is a start over. When spring is here, I am ready to clean out and begin again!

I also love to read new books! We just received 4 boxes of new books and are working on them so that you can check them out! Stop by soon and see what we have. I think you will enjoy them!

Read the winter away!

Have you read any good books lately! I have just finished reading some good ones. Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young, Elena Vanishing by Elena Dunkle and I just started Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Click on these titles to learn more about these books!All of these books have been great but all of the totally different. But they do have one thing in common. They were all written for Young Adults- That’s YOU!

I have discovered a great way to record what I am reading and share with other friends is by sharing the books I have read, or want to read on Goodreads. I have just set up a book club for Franklin County Students. Check it out at Good Reads! I think you will enjoy it.

Happy Reading! Mrs. Hawkinsimages
