Pumpkin Book Character Contest
We will be having our annual pumpkin character contest this year! The pumpkins will go on display beginning Friday, October 16th. A parent letter on golden rod paper and entry form on green paper were put in your boxes last Thursday. Please make sure to send those home. If you did not get them please let me know.
Our judges, so far, include several faculty members from our building, a few school board members, Mayor Cypert, and Ms. French. Just a heads up that they will be in the building on the morning of Wednesday, October 21st.

Also, I want to encourage kids to take their books home. I realize that some may lose them more easily. However, we want kids to have books at home to read too. Please encourage them to take their books home, share them with their families, and to enjoy them in their free time.
Finally, students who receive a late notice, but think that they have turned their books in can bring the notice to the library. We will look for the books on the shelves. The notices are reminders, not reprimands for having late books.
Thank you for your help with all of this!
