A very interesting bulletin board has been creating excitement lately at CPS. Located in the k-1 wing, this bulletin board is a Title I project and invites readers to add a picture of a book they have read to the map.

Recently, outer space has been added, as well as “Star Wars outer space”, courtesy of fifth grade super artist Trey Meader.
