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.

Library Tid-bits

I have to say that this might be one of the BEST weeks of returns in a long time.  Way to go WCS students! Out of 614 items checked out nearly all of them were returned and most of them were on time. That’s totally book-a-licious!!
Congratulations to the following classes for perfect returns:
Miss Miller’s Sixth Grade
Mrs. Dingeldein’s Fourth Grade
Mrs. Gervasi’s Second Grade
Mrs. Danielian’s First Grade
Miss Pityer’s Kindergarten
Mrs. Boren’s Kindergarten
Mrs. Nifong’s class had perfect returns just a couple fines due.
Miss Serafino, Miss Ellis, and Miss Bowdler’s class had just ONE overdue each. Mrs. Barr’s class is on track to have perfect returns next week!! J
Happy Birthday to two authors: Syd Hoff (Sept. 4th) author of Danny and the Dinosaur and other books and on September 16th it will be H.A. Rey’s birthday. He is the author of the Curious George books.  The first grade class will celebrate “Rey Day.” The rest of you can join in as well and wear YELLOW.
Stay COOL this weekend!!
