Final Library Visits and Due Dates

We will be having a final book giveaway. The aim is to have it coincide with Field Day. Final details will be shared as soon as they are finalized.

Final Silver Week is next week (May 9-13). We will have to do a lot of rescheduling because of testing and Field Day. Please look out for emails about rescheduling. Last Gold Week is May 16-20.

Student books due: during last library visit (no later than 5/20)

Teacher books due: May 26

Interlibrary Loans (books borrowed from other schools) due: May 23

Any materials you need for summer school may be renewed on Friday May 27th after our mental health professional development.

Summer Reading Programs

Kids will take home an AISD online resources bookmark again during our last visit. The reverse side of this bookmark will have resources for eBooks as well as information about summer reading programs that reward students for tracking their reading. research has shown that in order to prevent the "Summer Slide" students only need to read 6 books on their reading level.


Students set their own goal, read, log reading, trade reading log for a book at their local branch!


Parents/students register, read, log reading, win prizes!


Read 10 books, log reading, parents initial reading log, mail in reading log, prizes arrive in the mail (3-4 week response time)!

HalfPrice Books:

Read, log 300 minutes, earn Bookworm Bucks, buy books!

An additional program exists through Scholastic, but it requires teachers to register their students. If you're interested, please visit the link above. They've even got letters in English and Spanish to send home so that parents know what to do. This program earns kids digital rewards, but I'm not quite sure what those may be.

Please encourage students to visit the public library during Summer. Ms. Reyna, the new youth librarian, is planning to visit 4th and 5th grades soon to tell us about the host of programs offered at Little Walnut Branch! They're continuing a MineCraft Club as well as LegoLab!! If you are interested in sharing the May calendar with your students and families, feel free.

Last AR Rewards Challenge

We will be selecting students from 2nd-5th grades to attend a special trip to Recycled Reads. The readers will be selected based on their AR points at the end of the day on May 26. We will also monitor student point improvements to reward those who really took on the challenge and were most improved in their grade level. The number of students on the trip will be determined by how many volunteers can help us on the trip. If you know of anyone who is registered to volunteer through APIE and would be a good fit to work with this age range please have them contact me (contact info. below).
