From the Library

Greetings from the Library 

We have been having a great time in the library. Thank you for remembering to send library books back every week on your student’s library day so that they can get new books. Students in Kindergarten and first grade have been working on a Mo Willems author study during library time. We are having fun reading these fun books. Students in grades two through six have been learning about the layout and organization of the library so that they can be independent when looking for books.


The Book Fair is coming during the week of Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please consider volunteering to help us out this year. The Book Fair cannot be a success without the help of parents and volunteers. This Wild West Scholastic Book Fair will be our only in-school Book Fair this year. However, stay tuned for information about a Barnes and Noble Book Fair in the spring.


Battle of the Books will begin on October, 9 for grades three through six. Weekly meetings will be held every Tuesday from 3:30 - 4. Students need a permission slip to attend and to check out the specific books for this reading competition. Interested students received letters and permission slips during their library class the week of October 2.


Please contact me with any questions or concerns regarding the library, the book fair, or battle of the books.


Thank you,

Lisa Bunag
