We've Done it Again!

Once again Lewis Greenview Elementary School had a number of winners in the Visual Literacy Festival competition for Puppets. Five of our students, Orion Cook, Kody Bland, Taylor Ciotti, Cayla Anderson and Valisa Eady were all award winners this year. They join Orion Cook, Janise McCants and Jaira Gray who placed in previous festival competitions.There are two more competitions this yearComputer/Video Production and Book Making. We are hoping to continue our winning streak.

Our volunteers this year

Three middle and high students volunteer in the media center

Kenya Baker, a 2011 graduate of Lewis Greenview and now a student at W.G. Sanders Middle School, volunteered in the media center one day. Kenya was a hard worker and got a kick out of looking at her old class pictures and how young and small everyone looked. She is pictured here with her favorite book from her years at Greenview. Anna Chadwell, 8th grader, from Hand Middle School also spent a day in the media center checking books in and out, talking with students, and helping with our AR prize patrol. Lucy Quirk, 9th grader, from Cardinal Newman was with us for 2 days reading with students, checking books in and out and relabeling all our new reader books.

Meet Snowflake!

Snowflake and Mack (not pictured) were donated to the Media Center by the Wells Fargo bank. Each Thursday Greenview students have the opportunity to bring in money and deposit slips which are then taken to the bank on their behalf. We appreciate this partnership with Wells Fargo.

The Blowfish Reading Rewards Program begins in March

This March we will be participating in the Blowfish Reading Rewards program. Each student who meets his/her reading goals will have the opportunity to receive free tickets to the Columbia Blowfish game on June 4th. Students may read for the opportunity to receive up to 4 tickets, participate in the pregame parade and receive a food voucher for a hotdog. I hope all students will participate in this program as we celebrate two of our favorite spring activities: Reading and Baseball.

Did you hear?

The fiction section of the library is a big hit with students in grades 1-5 and recently has undergone some changes. The spine labels  now have the letter F (for fiction) followed by the first three letters of the author's last name. If I wrote a fiction book the spine label would read F COQ. This is a more traditional way of labeling books and we hope it will help you locate books more quickly.

Our Favorite Books for 2012-2013

The votes are in! Greenview students were able to vote on their favorite book from the list of South Carolina Book Award Nominees in both the picture book and children's book categories. Every Cowgirl Needs a Horse by Janni and The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by Hahn were our school winners. We will find out on March 11th if the rest of the students in South Carolina agree with us.
