To Porter Students and Families,
Please do not be stressed out about the library books and textbooks you have checked out. When the time comes, at a later date, you will have the opportunity to return them. No fines will be charged for books that are missing.
My concern is for your safety and well-being during this time and that far exceeds my concern for the textbooks and library books! I hope that makes you feel better because I care most about YOU !
You are very special to me and I miss you!!
Love, Mrs. Hamilton
Porter School Librarian

A Bushel of Books were graciously donated by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee. The agriculture-related books, game and curriculum build awareness, understanding, and promote an accurate perception of agriculture through education. The Bushel of Books grant application was written and submitted by Celicia Hamilton, Porter School Librarian.
The Bushel of Books, ag-curriculum, and a fun agriculture game are being used in Susan Rush’s science classes during and after school !
