What's UP in the Library

December News from the UP Elementary Library

Thank You!

Thank you for supporting UP Elementary at the Scholastic Book Fair last month. We had a wonderful turn-out. Profits help our school and our school library. Our success is truly contingent upon our volunteer support as well as the purchases made. I appreciate all you do!

Recent Library Activities

Overdue Notices

Overdue book notices will be coming home soon. Please remind your child to return any overdue books before the break. Students do have the opportunity to check out books before leaving on break so they can enjoy some good reading during their time off. Parents are always welcome to come to the library and check out books, too!

You have the opportunity to purchase a book for the library in honor of your child's birthday. For $25, a library book (from a selection of new books) will be dedicated to your child with a commemorative nameplate. If you would like to participate, it's not too late. Checks can be made payable to UP Elementary. Any questions? Email me at mccrarl@hpisd.org.

Mrs. Korte and Mrs. Burke, our wonderful library coordinators, have a message regarding Birthday Books:


Not sure if you purchased a library book during Back to School Sign UP? You can check your fees and dues section in Skyward family access and look for Library Donation of $25. That will mean you purchased a birthday book during Back to School Sign UP.
