  • Audible Hello families!

    Did you know that the Audible app is free to students during this time of school closure?

    Look what I found this morning: "Charlotte’s Web" by E.B. White, read by a full cast (including Meryl Streep!). I found many other wonderful children's books on the app as well!

    This sounds like a good choice for the entire family.

    Happy Reading,
    Mrs. Brandt-Erichsen
