A Message from Sandi Lehnhard, Librarian.
In this season of gift giving, I’d like to express my gratitude to you parents and families for the gifts your students are to me, and to all of us at Sonrise. God has given all of them such special and unique gifts and it is gratifying to be a part of watching them develop their skills and abilities. It is my joy, as well as a privilege, to be a part of their reading growth at Sonrise. I also want to thank all of you for your support of our Barnes & Noble Bookfair last month. The turnout was outstanding and your purchases will go towards new books for your children.

Parents and families, you are such an important part of encouraging your children in their reading. I'm including a link to a list of ways you can further nurture your child’s reading. It generates from one of my favorite websites, Common Sense Media. Click the link below to view the list.

I pray that your holiday season is blessed with good times, family, fellowship (maybe a few good books!) and with the joy that comes from knowing Jesus Christ, God’s ultimate Christmas gift.

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.”

1 John 4:9
