The library would like to thank all of the Rennell families who helped us reach our goal at our Enchanted Forest Book Fair! Thanks to your generosity we made over $5,000 dollars that will go towards new books for the library shelves and authors and gave over 50 new donated books to the Texas Children's Hospital Library! Congratulations to Gioia Franco in Mrs. Easterly's First Grade class! She was our grand prize winner in our "Fairy Tale Face Contest"! She won $25 in merchandise from our Scholastic Book Fair for her Little Red Riding Hood paper plate mask! The class with the best attendance at the night book fairs was... Mrs. Martinez's Kindergarten class! They won the Soaring Redhawk trophy and bookworm for the week! Finally, many thanks to Mrs. Camilla for organizing our volunteers for this special family week! We could not have done it without the library volunteers who generously gave of their time! We are so grateful for your help!
Hey Kindergarten through Second Grade parents: don't forget Author Ross Burach is coming to visit Rennell on November 15th! If you'd like a book autographed by him, please purchase a book at a store or online, place a sticky note with who you would like the book autographed to with your child's teacher and name, and send it to the library no later than November 13th. Great things are happening at the Rennell Library!
