Degan Library Happenings

November Newsletter

Reminder: Next week is "A" week!

Hello everyone!

Sorry this is a little late. I usually like to get my newsletters out at the first of the month, but better late than never. Thank you everyone for your support and love while I have been out recovering from my surgery! It has been a much slower process than I originally expected, but it will be worth it in the long run. I sure miss all of you and the kids, but I will be back after Thanksgiving Break.

Book Fair Week

Browsing and Shopping Times

From what I have heard, Tiffany Girton has placed a sign up sheet in the workroom. Please be sure to sign up this week for your book fair time. It is up to you whether you would like a browsing time or not. I know a browsing time can be difficult for some of the kids, so please do not feel obligated to do a browse if you don't feel like it is best for your class.

"B" Week Checkout

With book fair in the library, I don't want the "B" week classes to miss out on a checkout time next week. I suggested to my sub that she have a mobile library (a cart filled with books and a laptop with a scanner) that she can bring around to the "B" week classes. She thought that was a great idea; however, with her bad back, she is concerned about pushing a heavy cart around. So, instead of her pushing a cart around, I am in the process of locating a room that she could use for a temporary checkout next week. Once we have the details worked out, I will send an email with further information.

Please be sure to be taking photos of all the great things you and your students are doing! Thank you to those that have either been emailing photos or uploading them with the ImageShare App. If you have any questions about photos, please let me know.

College Logos for Classrooms

If you have already sent me the permission from your college/university for use of their logo, thank you! If you are having difficulties or just don't have the time to deal with this, please let me know. I do not mind assisting with trying to get their permission.

Thank you!!!

Thank you so much for all the awesome cards, letters, and the poster! I have loved reading (and re-reading) all of them! You all are the best! Can't wait to get back!
