Library Notes

Hi Concord families! Concord library would love to share some of our awesome activities and upcoming events.

  • World Read Aloud Day - On February 1st, we celebrated World Read Aloud day with a campfire read aloud! Students joined me in the library with a buddy class to listen to some of this year's state award nominees.
  • Book Battle Team - Concord 4th and 5th graders applied for our 2023 Book Battle team. The 10 teammates will read and study a set of 10 fiction chapter books to become experts. This spring, they will compete in the St. Louis Book Battle event at Dressel against other St. Louis schools.
  • Read Across America Week - From March 2-6, our country celebrates the joy of reading and the positive impact reading has on our kiddos. During student library lessons this week, we will be participating in fun book related activities. If interested, students are welcome to participate in an at-home activity to take part in our Read Across America Potato Character Design Competition. Listen to this read aloud of the picture book Potato Pants by Laurie Keller. After listening to the book, check out this link on how students can participate in our Potato Character Competition!
  • If anyone has extra craft supplies or maker space items they wish to get rid of after some good spring cleaning, send them our way!
  • Thank you for your support! If you ever have any questions, you can reach me at or ext. 3640.

Winter Weather Update for Families

As colder weather approaches, now is a good time to remind families and staff how we prepare for potential school closures that can result from snow, ice, or other severe weather events.

In the event of inclement weather, we will decide to close school based on a number of factors, including student safety, bus transportation, road conditions and wind chill temperature. When possible, the decision to close school is made by 10 p.m. the night before. However, if the decision cannot be made by 10 p.m., then a decision will be made between 5 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. the next morning.

If the decision is made to cancel school, all families and staff will receive a phone call, text message and email notification.
