Ashley Jiron - Library Assistant

October is here, and that means so many cool things happening in our library. We have had such a fun start to the new school year. I am really excited to continue working with the wonderful students here at SE!

The younger grades have been enjoying many read-a-louds. I am blown away by the big thinkers we have. They are all so engaged in every book we discuss. I will be reading the following books to grades PreK through 3rd in the month of October: The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith and Our Incredible Library Book and the Wonderful Journeys It Took by Caroline Crowe.

The older grades have continued their work with dictionaries. They have learned the various ways dictionaries can help us. They found misspelled words, went on a Dictionary Scavenger Hunt, and studied syllables. We will continue to study the dictionary and move on to the thesaurus before and after Book Fair.

2023 Fall Book Fair will be here in the Sundance Library from Monday, October 16, 2023 at 9:00 AM through Friday, October 20, 2023 at 1:00 PM. There was a date change for our Parent Night, so we could coincide with our Math and Science Night. Parent Night will now be on Tuesday, October 17th from 6:00-7:30 PM. I would love to meet our new families, as well as see all the familiar faces. I will be needing volunteers for Book Fair, so please email if interested. I will be reaching out to all the parents who sent in their
orange volunteer forms as well. Please look for an email in the coming weeks. Also, parents, please watch for correspondence regarding e-wallets through Scholastic. This is a way to add money with a debit or credit card online for your student to spend at our book fair. It reduces the amount of lost money, as well as ensures our students stay on budget. The week prior to Book Fair, students will receive more information.

Quick reminder that all library materials from last year will need to be returned or paid for so that your student may resume checkout for this school year. I have sent out several notices for students to take home. Please be on the lookout! We really strive to have each student check out a new book every week.
