Library

Welcome to the Library 2015-2016 School Year!!

 
Book Bucks:
I will be giving “Book Bucks” for students who have returned all library items on time. We will have the “Book Buck Store” at the end of each grading period. Weekly student librarians will receive an extra buck!
 
Discipline:
Yellow slips will be given to students who have disobeyed the library rules. They will fill out two slips for each offense (one slip for the librarian and one for the classroom teacher). Appropriate classroom consequences will be given.
 
Returning Items:
Please remind your child to bring their library items back on their scheduled library day. If they are absent on their library day the items are automatically renewed for one week. Fines are not due until items are returned. K students will not be fined; 1st-6th are fined 25₵ per item per week. Students must have their library item with them to renew, otherwise it will be late. Grace is given that week if items are back before 9:00 Friday morning. Overdue notices will go out by email on Fridays. *For repeated overdue offenses the student may be asked to keep their library items in the classroom.* Replacement fees will be charged for damaged or lost items.

A very Happy Valentines’ Day to all of you!!
 
Congratulation to Mrs. Dingeldein’s 4th grade class. They only had one overdue item. GREAT JOB!!
 
Just a reminder that this coming Friday is ReadQuest! I hope you have a fun day planned that centers around reading. Remember to look up fun and helpful information on  http://www.renaissance.com/readquest/resources
 
The TinCaps Reading Program is coming right along!  Seems like lots and lots of students are participating. Third base prizes are available the week of February 23rd. Those students who have not received 1st or 2nd base prizes can get them that week as well.
 
Concourse (the library software) is not allowing me to send out overdue/fine emails without causing an error. So whether it’s lack of WCS server power, or just a glitch in the software I will be giving paper letters for you to send home with students who fall into the overdue/fine category!!
 
Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend and day off on Monday.

Save the date for the TinCaps game coming up next spring: Saturday, April 30th at 5:05 pm. This date is different because we have always gone on a Friday night. For the new teachers this is a great all school event. We hope many can go this year. I will send out details of the Reading Program prior to the third grading period. Dates for the program will run January 5th-March 11th.

You all are wonderful and I’m thankful to work in an environment where God is honored and also where opportunity for sanctification abounds!!
