In honor of Read Across America Week, the PTA sponsored a book swap night on Wednesday, March 1. Dozens of McClellan families showed up to trade in their gently used books, and grab a few different ones in exchange. Special thanks to Pleasant Hills Library's Children's Librarian, Mrs. Dani, who kicked off the night discussing the upcoming, and ongoing, programs at the library. Another thanks extended to Mrs. Gilchrist who helped organize the exchange, and all the parents kind enough to staff the evening event.

The PTA will continue to collect BoxTops every month through the rest of the school year. The homeroom who submits the most valid BoxTops each month wins a prize. Mrs. Burke's class, who tied with Ms. Recktenwald's in December, enjoyed an opportunity to "Silly String the Principal!"
