FALL FESTIVAL WAS SO MUCH FUN!
Spin and win wheel was lots of fun! Hopefully, I can have it at my November Book Fair (depends on the number of my volunteers :)
HOW MANY SNOWBALLS IN A JAR guessing game was very popular!
Three (3) students guessed the correct amount, which was 57.
The winning students are:
Marshall in Mrs. Willard class
Noah in Ms. Buchman class
Sophie in Mr. Lopez class
Each student will receive 15 scholastic dollars certificate to use during the November book fair.
The certificates will be given to students the week before the book fair during their library time.

Scholastic Book Fair is Coming! November 15 - 22
Dear Parents and Families,
Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
· Set the example. Let children see you read.
· Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
· Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level.
Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
Family Event: November 15 (Friday) from 3pm till 5pm. Come check out the Book Fair in the Library and enjoy some hot cocoa in the Kindness Garden located next to the Library. “All for Books” donations are welcome. “All for Books” donations will be used to buy books directly from the Book Fair for our Library.
November 18 – 22 (Monday-Friday): the Book Fair will be open every day during Parent/Teacher conference week from 1pm till 4pm Come get books for holiday giving! Books are a perfect gift for your children, family members and our teachers. Check a “Teacher Wish List” section at the Book Fair.
Additionally, students can preview and shop the Book Fair during their scheduled library time.
Two NEW shopping options! Book Fair eWallet is a safe and convenient digital payment option for your student to shop the Fair cash-free. If you’re not able to attend the Fair, try our new online shopping. We’ve partnered with the Scholastic Store to offer over 6,000 products that ship direct to home (with free shipping on book-only orders of $25 or more)!
Visit our homepage to get started:

Thank you to Kiwanis of Lincoln for their Library Donation!
Kiwanis of Lincoln also donates books to our library so I can give them away to our students before summer! Our students love free books!
We sure appreciate everything they do for our library.
I had our students sign a special thank you which I framed and then gave to Kiwanis representatives during our meeting. They sure liked it!

CCC Library Newsletter- May 2019
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
The Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success and it’s all thanks to you! All the purchases made during the book fair totaled in about 7800 dollars! I chose to receive Scholastic dollars as my profit which is 50% of the total sales. Since I chose to receive only Scholastic dollars, Scholastic gave me an additional 5%, so I ended up receiving 55% of total profit in Scholastic dollars! Additionally, I attended a Scholastic workshop for which we received some more Scholastic dollars. (I'll attend another workshop next school year:)
After adding it all up our library has received 4000 in Scholastic dollars to get new books for our library!
After the book fair during library time students got a chance to browse Scholastic catalog and look for titles they would like to see in the library in the next school year.
The most popular titles are the following:
- Owl diaries series
- Raina Telgemeier Books ( Ghosts, Smile, Sisters)
- Babysitters club series
- Dragon masters series
- Harry Potter (I’m getting a whole new set as the current one I have is pretty used up)
- Diary of an awesome friendly kid
- Ranger in time series
- Stolen girl and The Girl in the locked room ( both titles are for 4-5 graders)
- Pokemon books
- Bad Guys
- Football and basketball
- Cars and motorcycles
- rocks and minerals
I’m definitely getting everything my students would like to read plus some of my choices :) (until I run out of Scholastic dollars)
If anyone has suggestions, please write to me with suggestions. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm going to have a book fair in November 2019 and then again in May 2020 so there's lots to look forward to!
All For Books
Pictures below show the books I got. Thank you!
Thank you to all Book Fair Volunteers!
Stay tuned for a sign up genius in the new 2019/2020 school year! I'm planning to have a book fair during parent/teacher conference week which falls on the week of November 18, 2019. It will be a great time to get books for Christmas and Holiday break!
I might need some help covering the new books I will be getting from Scholastic after summer. If I do, I'll create a sign up genius for that as well. (I will be processing the books myself to save on the cost) I would like to have the books available when students get back to school.
Thank you for all your help! I sincerely appreciate it!
My students volunteers helping with fliers during their lunch recess. They chose to help me while they had a choice of playing board games. Thank you!
I wouldn't be able to get all the Scholastic fliers with the parent letter attached if it wasn't for their help! Thank you!
My cashier volunteers. Thank you so much for your help during Open House! I hope I can count on you next year :)
