The Wonder Word

Summer's Coming Edition!

May 21, 2021

The LRC classes are ending...

... but that doesn't mean that reading has to!


After Memorial Day, the LRC will switch over to Inventory Mode, where we make sure we have all of our books accounted for and our collection is complete.


All library materials are due before or on Tuesday, June 1st. Today, Friday, May 21st, is the last day books were exiting the library (there may be a bit of wiggle room for curricular needs and holds). We be sending out reminders to all students who have books out next week. If for some reason you receive a notice, and you feel it is an error, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Schaab using my email below! I'm super flexible and happy to do a shelf check, if needed!

What's a GooseChase?

I know how much people enjoyed "reading BINGO". This summer we have a new fun reading challenge to keep us connected! his one is going to be super exciting- with no papers to lose- woot woot! If you want to get a head start, create a GooseChase account for your family by signing up here. I'll share the game info out on Friday, June 4th in the Field Flash. For the families that participated last year, this will be still super fun- and include more fun family challenges!

Attention 3rd & 4th Graders!!!!

The Battle of the Books List has been published for 3rd & 4th Graders and this year there are 40 books... that are the same as last year! YAY! I will tell you, this book list looks AMAZING! Many of the books digitally though Destiny Discover AND at the Park Ridge/Niles public libraries!


We will be restructuring how we do Battle this year and doing BATTLES at Field in OCTOBER before the ones at the library start, with more details to come. But the best thing you can do is START READING NOW!!!



If parents have questions, feel free to reach out to Mrs. Schaab directly.

Summer Reading!

In library classes during the week of May 24th, students will be receiving their passport to summer reading from the Park Ridge Public Library. It is our hope that 80% of Field School Students, in Park Ridge and Niles complete this program! This program can be done virtually through beanstack starting on June 11th. You just need to read for 30 days and you will recieve a prize book! WOO HOO!
