Library Thoughts for the Week- Final Newsletter

Each week, during our physical time away from school, I will be sharing some information that might be helpful for parents at home to do with their children or for students to do on their own. I will include the information for the Live Stream book that I will read every Friday as well as a link to an online book they can listen to. I will also include an activity that can be done at home and links to resources that I find interesting. This is meant to be a resource NOT homework!

Library Book Return

Thank you to all of you have reached out regarding returning library books! Each grade will be sent instructions regarding book return as we set schedules. Please put library books in a safe place for now. If you need a reminder on which books your students have out you have two options:

1) Find details on how to download and use the app below; scroll down to "Using the LVJUSD Mobile App". LVJUSD App.

If you have not already, you will need to link each student to your account. Login using their student id with a letter before it. You only have to do this for one of your students and the rest will populate. Choose the "Student Info" icon.

For Parents:

Login: Example: M20101234 (M for mother and F for father)

If you do not remember your password, you can do a password reset.

5th Grade Digital Citizenship Lesson

This week I had a webex with all of 5th grade regarding digital citizenship. It covered being responsible for being safe with passwords as well as a general lesson about being kind online and the permanent status of what is posted and "said" online. This applies to all of our students. Please take a moment to speak with your students about this very important information.
