59 National Parks Blogging Connection

Check out the egret in this picture! Our blogging partners Don and Shelly Hafner from sent this picture from St. Augustine, Florida. 4th grade students in Ms. Hedges class were able to Facetime with the Hafners in April from Everglades National Park. We even saw a live crocodile! Be sure to follow their blog or Twitter account for more fun trip pictures over the summer. @59NationalParks

Summer Library BINGO!

Within the next few weeks we will begin sending home Summer Library BINGO cards! Remember that the summer is a time when many students lose some of the reading progress they have made during the school year. It is important for all students (even our kids above grade level) to keep reading ALL summer long!

To help encourage summer reading, put the Summer Library Bingo card on your fridge and keep track of the great books you read! Students who return completed Bingo cards in August will celebrate with a party in the fall. Make sure your student has the opportunity to attend.

End of Year Reminders

Remember - All library books and materials are due back to the library by Friday, May 16. Any lost or damaged materials will need to be paid for before the end of the year. Students with missing materials or fines will NOT receive their progress reports on the last day of school.

Students participating in summer school at Schumacher will have the opportunity to check out during the summer.

Contact Mrs. Bright in the library with your questions.
