Welcome to the Library 2015-2016 School Year!!

Dear Students, Parents, and Teachers:
Welcome back! I look forward to serving your children in the library. Please take a moment and review some library procedures and complete the parent commitment page on the back. Thank you.
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!
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.

Fun in the Library!

Library Tid-bits

The leaves are so breathtaking!! The earth declares His glory!

Well, unfortunately no perfect returns this week! It must be post-fall-break-brain-fog. Here’s hoping for a better report next week.

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.

Remember to save the date for the Scholastic Book Fair coming up November 18-20. We are hoping Wednesday, November 18th can be a preview day where the students look around and pick out a wish list. This will also be a day for the teachers to browse and plan how to spend some money!

**The students who ordered books from R. Friend should receive them by later next week.**

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