In celebration of World Kindness Day on Nov. 13, the first graders at Santapogue Elementary School read “The Jelly Donut Difference” together. The book drives home the importance of kindness and how we show each other kindness. The first graders then created their own unique jelly donuts and wrote about different ways they could show kindness.

Santapogue Elementary School held a pumpkin character contest in October. The library contest offered students the opportunity to decorate a fake pumpkin like their favorite book character from any book in the library. The pumpkins were then put on display in the library, and each student voted on their favorite pumpkin from each grade level. Congratulations to all the winners, who showcased their creativity with their unique pumpkin characters.
