For the second year, we have participated in the Virginia 529’s Reading Makes Cents program. Through this program, the students have had 5 books read to them that were about financial responsibility. They just need to fill out the form that was sent home with a sentence about their favorite book (of those 5 books listed), the personal information and return the form to the library by March 28, or mail it in yourself. 14 students in Virginia who turn in their completed forms on time will be chosen at random to win $529 in a Virginia 529 account!
For the third year in a row, Mullen students are on their way to being eligible to vote for their favorite book in the annual Virginia Readers’ Choice contest. We read at least four of the VRC titles and each student gets to vote for the one they liked the best.
Are you interested in volunteering in the library??? We are always looking for extra hands to shelve books and repair books. If you have an hour a week, we could use your help!! Contact Mrs. Corcoran if you are interested.
On behalf of the Mullen Shamrocks, we would like to extend our congratulations to 5th Grader Joshua on winning the School Wide Spelling Bee! We wish him luck in the County Bee on March 10! Way to go, Joshua!
