Important Library Reminders: 

  • All students attend library one time per week for 40 minutes per week. Students experience read alouds, lessons on how to use the library, and older students have lessons using technology. 

  • *All students should keep their library books in their bookbags when they are not reading them.  This way, students will always be able to find their books and to return them to the library on time. 

  • *Please do not keep water bottles in backpacks.  Several new books have been damaged by leaking water bottles. 

  • *Students in grades 1-5 need to know their lunch PINs as well as how to spell their last names. Logging into our Chromebooks in Library and Technology requires students to use these pieces of personal information.

  • *Kindergarteners, please keep practicing those lunch PINs!
