PUPPET PIZZAZ EXTRAVAGANZA: AUG. 2ND AT 3 PM

Kids, join us on August 2nd at 3 pm for a Puppet Pizzaz Extravaganza with Mr. Greg Ruhe  for our final SRP program this year. Tickets can be picked up at the information desk 1 hour before the program.  Mr. Ruhe has been delighting children in schools and libraries in the Houston area for the past 20 years with his puppets. This show is sure to be a lot of fun so we look forward to seeing you all there. Because of limited space, children must be old enough to sit through a program without a parent.

Have you started your school's suggested summer reading list yet?

Both CyFair ISD and Katy ISD include a list of recommended Summer reading on their websites categorized by grade level. These books fly off the shelf during the summer time so make sure to put your requests in as soon as possible. Both districts' lists are also available at the Bear Creek reference desk to look at or copy or you may visit the links below.
