GUFL: Start off the new school year right!  Ms. Boruszak &  Mrs. Stocco are  in the library from 7:30- 8:00 a.m. & 3-3:30 pm to check in  & out students. Using your assignment notebook, we can assist with the organizational piece that begins your path to success with homework completion, folder/binder organization and test preparation.  Mrs. Boruszak will be in her room, at the end of the day, which is adjacent to the back door where the buses leave from, room E7. This makes it easy for any seventh or eighth graders to check out with her, or find Ms. Mastin in D1.  GUFL runs the entire school year. See your homeroom teacher if you are interested & they can let any of us know.
