Welcome to 2017!  I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Holiday season with your family and children. Please encourage your students to keep reading or read to your students every night.  Ask your students to tell you about the story or important facts they learned when they read the library book.  As the new semester begins, we will be doing more research in the library.  First through fourth grades will be doing research on a variety of topics including: zoo animals, polar bears, penguins, sea animals, pets, famous Kansans and more.  It is important for your students to return their library book each week.  If a book should become lost or damaged, you will need to pay for the book. First through fourth grade student’s work on reading books for their Book Bingo, please encourage your students to read and complete the different genres on the Book Bingo.  We have a small party with extra outdoor recess, a treat to eat, or play a game to celebrate the students who completed their Book Bingo.
