Online Book Fair


Come take a look at what's available from our Scholastic Book Fair!  If you or a loved one would like to contribute to our library fundraiser, and cannot make it to the school next week during Feb. 5-8th, the online Book Fair makes it possible to support your student and the school. It is also a great way to get the titles your students may want in case we run out!

Orders will be delivered to the students classroom.  If you need to sent to the library as a birthday gift or a surprise, you can send them to the library and I will contact you.

We are still looking for volunteers for shifts and still have openings for Grandparents to volunteer in classrooms as well.

See you soon!

This week in library....

One of our library centers is learning to use electric snap circuit boards to create electric processes. The students could assemble a flying saucer, a fan, a fiber optic LED show, a music box and a electromagnetic board.   These were so popular the other students didn't want to stop!

I am delighted when I see my kids so involved and engaged in our centers.  I hope this will "spark" some curiosity and someone will do a electricity themed STEM fair project. (STEM FAIR is on February 2nd btw)

Our other VERY popular center was the ROBOT mice coding center. Not only are the mice really cute, but they are easy to use so students figured out how to program them in no time! A Big Thank You to Mrs. Whitlock for generously sharing her coding mice sets with us.

 It's been a great week in the library.
