A Request from the Librarian....

Lately, the library has seen an increase in the amount of water damage to books due to water bottle spills and leaks. Please remind students of the following ways to help avoid this from happening:

  • Keep books and water bottles in different compartments of a bag.

  • Double check that water bottle tops are secured and closed properly.

  • If a leaky water bottle is a continual problem, place books in a ziplock bag.

Thank you for your help in keeping our books in great condition for everyone to enjoy!

Several Robert Martin Elementary fifth grade students will be competing in the Nationwide Fall Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl Contest on Friday, November 10th. The contest is a self-scoring,

computer contest of 100 multiple-choice questions to be answered by the group. Areas that will be covered include math, geography, government, sports, spelling, science, literature, English, history, general information and just plain fun trivia.

Several students will select the team’s answers on the computer, while the others will read through the questions and answers as quickly as possible to determine the best answer. Each question offers two chances to answer correctly. Points will be awarded based on how fast the question is answered by the group, as well as how accurately. No adult assistance will be given!

The 2023 Fall Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl team members include:

Trey S., Jin-Sup S., Carter W., Parker K., Nabhan C., Brooklynn G., Carter M., Titus A., Brek L., Henry T., Joel T., Addie L., and Eric Y.
