In The Library

August-September

Now that the craziness of Back to School has started to settle down, I wanted to take this oppertunity to introduce myself. My name is Michelle Philippides and I have been a teacher at IHK for the past 18 years. During this time I taught Kindergarten and 2nd grade. I am so excited to be the new LMC Director and work with past students and get to know new ones.

What's New?

What's With the Bags?

As you have noticed, your child's library book is in a plastic bag. In the past, many books have been damamged by waterbottles and snacks in backpacks. My hope is that we can work together to decrease the number of books that are damaged this year.

The second benifit to using plastic bags, is the barcode I have placed inside the bags. This allows the student to check out books independantly when they come to the library. If your child's bag needs to be replaced, I will transfer the barcode to a new bag.

Thank you for your help in keeping our library books in great shape all year long!
