@ The Library with Mrs. Hincks
Give the Gift of Books
You will not find information about what we have been learning by each grade level in this newsletter. That information can be found in the comments of your child's report card.
Recently, some of the kindergarteners participated in the Winter Around the World Project. This project was designed about a librarian who wanted to collect winter stories from around the world. The goal is to allow students to see what winter looks like everywhere. These projects and stories are being collected into a global digital winter story. Click here to learn more about this project. Click here to see what some of our kindergarteners submitted to the story.
Remember that the library is open Tuesday - Friday from 3:00 - 4:00pm for Extended Library Hours. You can come in to check out extra books, read, or complete homework! Please let me know if you have any question or concerns.
