This week, the library held a pizza party to thank the junior and senior library monitors for all of their hard work during Term 1. The library monitors gave up their free time over break and lunch during Term 1 to shelve books, work on special library projects, help their fellow students find books, and generally keep the library humming. We celebrated with pizza, cake, prizes, and a rousing game of musical chairs.
The library was decorated especially for the party:

Special thanks to all of the library assistants, who worked so hard to plan the party! And thank you, too, to all of our library monitors. We are looking forward to another great term when we get back from break!
