Students, we are looking for motivated, hard-working students who would like to perform a good deed by giving back to a community member who is in need. There is a wonderful community service opportunity for any student at Jonesville Middle School to clean up a village members yard by raking leaves and picking up sticks to prep her yard for the winter. Rakes and tarps will be provided. If you would like to participate and have received permission from your parents then please take the time to sign up in the office by Monday, November 3. We will plan to rake the lawn on November 4 beginning immediately after school. Students will walk down to the house and will then return to the middle school to be picked up by their guardians by 4:30 p.m. If you have questions or concerns please contact Mrs. Hitt at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 517-826-7083.

These books were made available to our library at no cost because you and your families are ordering from the book orders. Please keep ordering so we can keep adding books to our shelves!
