This year's Scholastic Book Fair begins on Monday, October 6th and runs through the week to Friday, October 10th. Students can shop during their regularly scheduled library classes, or you can come with them to Family Night on October 7th from 6-7:30. City Year will be running a fun Family Literacy Night that same night in the gym. The book fair will be held in the library. For a larger selection of books for all ages, you can shop the online book fair. Shipping is free, and books will be sent home with students after the fair closes.
During the event we'd like to gather some information about the ways your family reads and your thoughts about our school library program. Look for a table where you can fill out an online survey and get a raffle ticket for one of three bags of books pulled from the book fair!
You may have noticed that your child has not brought home any library books yet this year. Borrowing has been pre-empted during the NWEA tests for all students. Things will get back to normal once the book fair is over.
Welcome back to school, everyone! The library looks a lot different this year, as I had to re-organize the space a bit. New books, funded through last spring's Scholastic Book Fair, will be on the shelves any minute. Circulation will start next week, for most classes. Speaking of the bookfair, it's coming again soon! I decided to run it early this year, so look for flyers with all the info. It will be set up from October 6th-10th. Family Night will be that week, but a date hasn't be picked yet--stay tuned.
My favorite thing to do in the summer is to make something new. Usually, this involves gardening or carpentry. Almost always, I read a book or website first to learn how to do a new thing. This summer, I'm building a little deck, planting blueberries, and trying out new vegetarian recipes. I challenge you to make something new! It doesn't have to be big or expensive. It could be an art project, a poem, an invention that you make out of recycled junk, a new recipe...Email me with how and why you did this project. Take a picture if you can, and I'll post your creations on this web page.
Hey Everyone! Welcome back to school!
We have a new library catalog this year that you can search from home! Click on the link below, or on the sidebar where it says "Library Catalog" and click on the name of our school to check it out! You can even change the way the page looks by clicking the "paint" icon up in the right-hand corner.
Here is a link to a template for the vocabulary cards:
5th grade students are hard at work on their science fair projects. They have been doing background research for their projects during library classes. Work will begin soon on preparing their experiments in science class with Mrs. Sindoni. The actual experiments will mostly be done at home. I will be setting up times after school to assist students in completing their projects. Use the links below to help you!

We would love gift cards to Barnes and Noble, Amazon, or Gibson's Bookstore (Concord)!
We also go through lots of pencils, colored pencils, crayons, and tissues like any classroom.
