Disappointment reigns again for the poor old librarian. “Johnny” from the TinCaps got canceled for the second year in a row. We might try to reschedule, but with all the delays and cancelations I’m not sure how you all feel about that. Shoot me an email if you have an opinion.
Second base prizes start next week for the TinCaps Reading Program. As a reminder please send verification slips with your envelope on your library day. I will take 1st and 2nd base forms. Students can only get prizes on their library day. All verification slips go into a box for a big drawing at the end of the contest. We have some nice donation from the community. The biggest donation has been from Meijer, they were very kind.
I will not send out overdue reminders for this past Wednesday’s library classes (K, 2nd, and 5th). We will deal with waiving overdue items next week. If your students run out of something to read send them down before noon today.
The Old and Ugly Book Contest is under way for students in grades 2-6. If students want to participate they need to pick a book from the WCS library in their AR range, read it, and fill out the contest form. The idea is: you can’t judge a book by its cover. Students are being taught how to look for the copyright date. So, the book can be old – or ugly – or both! Forms are due Friday, February 28th.
Happy Birthday to Laura Ingalls Wilder today, February 7th Mrs. Wilder died in 1957.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:5-8
