Pershing K-8 Library Loop

October 2021

October Reading Incentive

Students who read at least three chapter books during the first three weeks of October can fill in a sheet telling us how each one was a trick and a treat. Elementary students who complete a sheet will be invited to a spooky story time on Friday, October 29, and middle school students who complete a sheet will be invited to one of four spooky story times during the last week of October, at 5-Star time.

Students can download and print a copy of the sheet or pick it up from their ELA teachers or the library. Invitations will be sent out by Friday, October 22.

September's Learning

Last month, Pershing students focused on being able to access materials in the library more easily. Here is the month in review:

Elementary Focus: Finding Books & Checking Out

Last month was spent getting younger students settled into a library routine and getting older students' memories refreshed on finding materials.

Middle School Focus: Accessing eBooks & Digital Audiobooks

ELA students grades 6-8 took time last month to learn the easiest way to access our digital materials. In case they forgot what was discussed during their library times, there is a short video available to refresh their memories. Many teachers posted the video on their Canvas pages, and you can find it below.

Fall Book Fair a BIG Success!

During the course of our first book fair of the year, we raised over $1600 in Scholastic Bucks that can be used to purchase more books for our library! We were able to spend about $600 of those Bucks by just pulling popular, hard-bound titles right from the book fair.

The book fair was pet themed, so we had students vote with their change for which pet was better: dogs or cats. Dogs a whisker.

Library Map Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the Library Map drawing! Five middle school students won gift certificates to our September Book Fair for completing a map of the library and marking an X where one of their favorite books would be found in Pershing's library.
