Wilmer Hutchins Elementary Library

Little Eagles August/ September 2015

Welcome Back Little Eagles teachers and students

Welcome back to our new school year. I am so happy to be here at Wilmer Hutchins Elementary. I look forward to getting to know each of our new staff members and working with you. Please send me an email or stop by and let me know about any print and/or non-print resources that you would like to have to support your curriculum. If our school does not have them, I can request an interlibrary loan from any library in the district. I am also not afraid to travel ( to the nearest public library )

For Your Information @Your Library Media Center

This year the library will not be in the rotation schedule. I have emailed you a copy of the set schedule for your class to attend. In that schedule there is a time for students to come in to check out or return books after 1:45 p.m. this is open check out time. Please send your students in to the library with their passes and ID cards to check in/out books. If you have one available please send them in with a timer. Each student should be in and out within 10 minutes. Before you send your sweeties, please remind them of your expectations in the library.

If you need me to work with a small group of students on a project, just remember to check my daily schedule for my available times. Also, feel free to book me at these times to collaborate on upcoming lessons.

Do you need a book to support an idea, lesson or topic? Please let me know. I will add it to the consideration file and order it for you. That is my job and it is my pleasure to help you in any way that I can.

Do you need some ideas on how to organically incorporate technology into your curriculum? Just ask and I will come up with some ideas on how we can accomplish that.

If you need to return materials, the drop box is on the right side of the circulation desk when you are facing the front of it. You may also place materials in my mailbox in the hallway, and I will check them in for you.

The libary contest

To promote good reading and responsibility we are challenging students to read, respond and report.
They will read the books checked out from the library, then they will respond with a short summary of what is read, then report back to the library on the appointed day with the book and summary.

If this is done by each class member in each section then the class will be rewarded with ice cream in the fall, popcorn in the winter and cookies in the spring.
