MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS:
The middle school book club recently read Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi and saw him speak at the Schomburg Center.
The students enjoyed hearing him talk about his childhood, his multiple careers and college degrees, and hear about the trials and tribulations of being a professional author in today’s publishing industry.
I will continue to work with individual middle school teachers on class projects. Students can also visit the library during their lunch period every day.
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL NEWS:
See the sidebar for the elementary weekly visit schedule. Please remember to ask your child what books they are reading, and remind them to bring their books back to school on library day.
The school received a month of free ebooks from My Capstone Library, and students from first through fifth grade have had a chance to enjoy them.
If you are looking for free ebook options for your children with built-in read alouds and fun visuals, there are many options available through the public library. Call or email me (contact information below) and I will be glad to help you get connected.
- Monday: 5th Grade
- Tuesday: 4th Grade
- Wednesday: 3rd Grade
- Thursday: Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade
