Be A Champion and READ!!!

There are 3 easy steps to follow:

  1. Read the parent letter and fill out your reading log.
  2. Please encourage students to use the “Be a Champion and READ” reading log (one per student) in conjunction with classroom reading logs.
  3. Have students return their reading log to school no later than Oct. 30th… Students will get an Alabama or Auburn bookmark from the Library. Entry cards will be mailed to the AEA office on Oct. 30th to enter a chance to win Iron Bowl tickets.

Our Library Lessons...

This rotation we learned about being good DIGITAL Citizens... This means that we use the technology in the Media Center responsibly. We explored a Nearpod presentation together. We learned how to travel safely on the internet and we compared how traveling safely in the real world is like traveling safely on the internet.

We learned three simple rules to keep in mind for good DIGITAL Citizenship.


1. Always ask a parent or teacher before you use the internet.

2. Only talk to and message people you know on the internet.

3. Stick to "just right" places for you on the internet.

Art Show...

A special THANK YOU to our art teachers Courtney Holland and Angela Santiago for helping our boys and girls create such beautiful art for our Art Gallery Walk and Book Fair Family Night. The parents really enjoyed getting to see the creativity of their children.
