A Note from our Librarian

Dear Parents and Families,

Can you believe it’s almost summer break? The FCE Library will begin end-of-year book return on Monday, May 2nd. Your child will be given an opportunity to return their library books during their regular library rotation from 5/2-5/11. Overdue slips will be generated after May 12th. If you need to report a book as lost, please contact me (Ms. Andrew) at the email address listed below. I’m happy to help you through the process.

Paying for lost books is easy with our online Revtrak payment portal!

As an incentive for returning library books and paying fines so the library can afford to replace lost copies, all students whose accounts are cleared by the last week of school will be entered in a raffle on Friday, May 27th. Winners will be announced throughout the morning to come to the library and claim their prizes.

I sincerely appreciate your support in spreading the joy of reading through student choice in our school library. Thank you again and have a wonderful week!

Any medication not picked up, including Inhalers and Epipens, will be disposed of on Friday,May 27, 2022.
