SRC Reminders

Last Call for Books

Last day to checkout books: Wednesday, June 1st (overnight checkout only)

All books must be returned by Friday, June 3rd!

7th and 8th graders should return their books before leaving on class trips.

Due to the transition of our library software program, a complete inventory of our collection must be completed in June. Therefore, it is important that all library materials are returned as soon as possible. Any items found missing on June 9th will be marked lost and accounts will be charged accordingly by the Business Office.

Book Swap Part Deux

Wednesday, June 1st, 8am

4050 Lighthouse Drive

Wind Point, WI

Book Swap is back! Spring cleaning and graduations provide the perfect opportunity for sharing those well-loved books (children and adult). Drop off those too-small uniforms, books you will never read again, and pick up something new to read this summer. Book Swap will be held Wednesday June 1st and Thursday, June 2nd (8:00-10am and 3:30-5pm) in the JAC. Contact Mrs. Weaver at with any questions.

Arnie the Doughnut is Coming to Prairie

Arnie the Doughnut will visit Morning Meetings and PS classrooms to kick off our Summer Reading Programs on Tuesday, June 7th. Students will be invited to purchase his new book, Invasion of the Ufonuts, prior to the event. MS and US teachers will be sharing Summer Reading program specifics.

Summer Happenings at the SRC

New Library Software

Over the summer break, the SRC will be transitioning to a new library management software program called Destiny. This new program will be much more user-friendly for teachers and students with some great tracking/list features similar to Good Reads and integrated access to our digital collection of ebooks and audiobooks. There will also be a mobile app available. More information will be forthcoming.

*Please note that your current account history will be lost during this transition. If you would like a list of your previous checkouts, please see Mrs. Weaver or Mrs. Hagopian to assist you with this.

Book Clubs

The MS book clubs and incoming 4th Grade Battle of the Books participants will meet once a month in the SRC over summer vacation. Meeting dates are listed below. Additional discussion opportunities via Google Hangouts will be sent to members directly. If you are interested in joining the 5/6 or 7/8 book clubs, please see Mrs. Weaver.

Wednesday, July 20th: 12 noon in the SRC

The Faculty Book Club will meet for a meal and discussion sometime during the summer. I will send out a date before the end of the school year.
