"Story Laboratory" Book Fair March 18-22

"Story Laboratory: Reading Gives You Super Power!" is the theme for our annual Scholastic Book Fair, which will be held in the library from March 18-22. Students may shop during their class’s library time, during lunch/recess, or at Tuesday Night Family Night. Proceeds from the fair (about 30-40% of sales) go directly to support our library and our annual author visit. Flyers (with a list of some of the books available at the fair) have gone home with students.

Mark your calendar for the Book Fair Family Night on Tuesday, March 19th from 3:30 - 7:00 p.m. At Family Night, students will have the opportunity to enter contests to win gift certificates for the fair. This is a great time to shop for gifts and pick up some hot new books. Hillside teachers’ “wish lists” will also be on display at the fair! 

We now have an "online fair extension" that allows anyone to shop the book fair online! Items ship to the school for FREE on the last day of the fair (March 22). Tax is applicable to online purchases, however.

Welcome Back from Sophia and "The Librarian Who Came Back" Book by Yena S.

I was so grateful for all the kind words of welcome when I returned to work this week!

Sophia created this welcome back for me:

It was especially heart warming when Yena S., one of my third graders, handed me this specially made book, entitled "The Librarian Who Came Back."  I decided to scan it for all to enjoy! Thank you, Yena.
