|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
Through the generosity of the MBEF, the Pacific Elementary library will be open this summer to meet the reading needs of MBUSD students. Any MBUSD student can use this library over the summer. The district library media specialists will take turns staffing the library; my weeks will be those of July 8 and July 15. The Pacific Elementary library will be open from June 24 to August 2, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. (closed on July 4). Hope to see you there!

The Whispering Skull, by Jonathan Stroud
The next day, Don Pepe stumbled out to the yard in his nightshirt. He tore away the blanket and pleaded:
"You have no tree to roost in, no hen and no chicks to comfort you, no grain to fill your belly, no sun to drive away the shadows. WHY oh why are you still singing? Promise to stop and I will set you free!"
One by one a quiet crowd began to gather in Don Pepe's yard.
"I sing for those who dare not sing--or have forgotten how," said the gallito. "If I must sing for them as well, señor, how can I keep from singing?"
