Our Library Media Center!

Book Fair is happening the week of March 3-7! Be sure to visit the Book Fair in the library between 8 a.m.-3 p.m. during school or during Open House March 4th from 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. We also have our online book fair for those who can't make it to the school this week. Visit to make your selections. They will be shipped to the school and delivered in a few weeks.

We also will celebrate Dr. Seuss this month as our featured author. Look for his books in the front section of the library!!


Don't forget that each class will need to use the Library Media Center at least once each semester for a writing or research lesson that we collaborate on. If you have a great idea, please let me know so we can get it planned out!! Also, if you would like help with integrating technology apps in your classroom let me know. I am willing to try them out or introduce them with classes in the library.

Reading Programs

This year students will have several opportunities to participate in reading programs.

Book It! Begins October 1st for K-5 classrooms. Teachers have received the information and should be setting goals with their students to earn their free pizza.

Six Flags 6 Hour Reading Challenge: The challenge has started. Teachers can sign up at . Each student who reads a least 6 hours between now and the March 3rd deadline will receive a free ticket to Six Flags in their last report card of the year. ***The deadline has been extended until March 10th!! Be sure to get those logs entered so you can get your tickets.

Reading Olympics

First-Fifth Grade has begun the Reading Olympics program in the library. Each student will have the chance to read for various prizes and recognition by completing their Reading Olympics chart for Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals. I hope to see a lot of great reading taking place so we can all be Gold Medal Readers!! If you need the reading chart for your grade level or have any questions about the program, please let Ms. Hall know.

We have already had several students turn in their bronze reading log and pick up the silver!!! Keep reading and remember to GO FOR THE GOLD!!
