Final notices for overdue library books are going home TODAY. Please return the book or cost to replace the book noted on the sheet by Wednesday, JUNE 1st.
Your child’s account needs to be taken care of before the final report card can be released. If your child is a graduating kindergartner, then the book needs to be returned or the balance paid before your child can attend the ceremony.
If your child has not received an overdue notice, your child’s account is taken care of. If you just want to be sure that they were not given one or if you have any questions, you can email Mrs. Susina.
The Booked for Recess Club (Grade 1) met yesterday to discuss “The One and Only Stuey Lewis.” They really seemed to enjoy the short stories in the book and understood a lot of what Stuey was feeling about his time in 2nd grade.
This week, students in grades 1-5 are continuing their work on the comics they started last week. Some have given me their comics to copy so that others can read them in the library. I will be placing them in a binder that will sit on our graphic novel/comic shelf. I love how creative the students have been!
The Booked for Recess Club (Grade 2) met for the last time this year. We discussed the book, “Flora and Ulysses.” A book about a squirrel that becomes a superhero after being sucked up by a vacuum cleaner…and he types poetry?? The kids thought this book’s story line was very original!
In the next couple of weeks, Mrs. Susina will be visiting classrooms and students will be making their own comic strips or pages individually or in small groups. It should be fun to see what stories and characters the students come up with!
Students who participated in the Six Flags Read to Succeed Program by reading 6 hours and turning in their log sheets have earned a FREE ticket to Six Flags. Mrs. Susina put the tickets in teacher mailboxes today and they should go home today or Friday. We had about 40 students in grades K-6 “read to succeed” this school year!
