    Welcome to Library Corner!

     

    Our Annual Winter Wonderland Book Fair is coming!

    I can’t believe it is almost time for our annual Book Fair. This year’s fair will once again kick off the holiday season with a Winter Wonderland theme! Be sure to include us in your holiday shopping. Lots of great books will be available from Scholastic! The dates are November 14 through 18. And check back for more details in the coming weeks.

  • We had a great final week in the library before Winter Break! Mrs. Robinson read "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" to all 29 classes. We talked about why this wonderful book is considered a holiday classic and enjoyed the beautifully creative words of Dr. Seuss's most famous narrative poem!

     
     

    We had a great turnout for our final Family Library Time of the fall semester. In the photo below, one of our moms is selecting holiday books to enjoy during Winter Break! Parents and students, please join us EVERY TUESDAY of the Spring Semester until 5:45 to check out up to 5 books per family member to read to and with your child! Mrs. Robinson is excited to work with you and your children to find the perfect books to enjoy at home!

     

    Mrs. Robinson loved seeing all the teachers dressed up as elves, Santas, and reindeer this week! Our Pre-K teacher Mr. Vazquez certainly got into the spirit of Reindeer Day!
