We are so excited to announce that Sprague's Book Bus will be starting in the next few weeks! Please keep an eye out for a link to create a wish list of 10 books that your Sprague student would enjoy. You will receive four books at a time, checked out to your child for a two-week period. Books will be delivered to your door by the transportation department and your family will be responsible for returning these books to the school within two weeks of receiving them. You are welcome to wish list 10 more books upon returning the previous checkout. More details will come soon!

Additionally please keep in mind the amazing community resources available to all families! If you do not yet have a public library card, this is the perfect time to get one! You can search your local library’s website for steps to obtaining a library card and your family will have access to many awesome options, including books, STEM kits, and more!
