This Month

Library and Technology News

I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break and time together as a family. This month we are working on Digital Citizenship. The students are learning and practicing Sharing safely, protecting their information, being kind on devices, and being smart about fake news.

Is where we are going to find many of our lessons and videos for Digital Citizenship. Check it out.

Children have either a MyOn account or GetEpic.com that they can use to read over the holiday break.

 


BOOK EXCHANGE

Please get all of your child’s library books returned before Winter Break and they will be able to participate in our library book exchange. Your child will get tickets to use to get new books if they bring in some to swap. Be looking for newer, gently used books to bring in.  Between Dec 10th and Dec 14th, students may bring in gently used books to exchange. Students will receive a ticket to bring to the exchange on their library day that week. We are accepting: picture books, chapter books, and non-fiction books. The maximum number of books a student may bring in is 5.

Students may exchange books in the Media Center during their class based on the number of books they’ve donated.

Book Criteria

Please make choices carefully before bringing in books. Please find gently used choices to swap. Books will be checked and only be accepted under the following guidelines:

• Books must be appropriate for grades PreK-6

• Books must be in gently used condition: cover on, no rips, tears, or bent edges

• Books with coloring or writing in them will not be accepted

• Coloring books, board books, activity books, and sticker books will not be accepted

• Books from kids’ meals will not be accepted (Chick-fil-a, McDonalds, etc.)

Please note that the selection of books available will be based on books donated. We cannot ensure specific titles, etc.
