More Helpers!

Check out these great 4th grade helpers for inventory time! These cuties gave up their recess today to come in and help me clean shelves and counters and tables. I so appreciate them! We also finished Shiloh, our last read aloud for the year in the 4th grade today and we all agreed that it is a wonderful, deep story that no one will forget. When the class applauds at the end of  a book, you know you have a winner.

Thanks again to Joella, Eli, Michelle and James. You Rock!

Inventory Time!

This is the time of year that we need to weed,  inventory all the books, clean the shelves and make sure all the books are in their proper places on the shelves for the start of the new school year after summer vacation. When you have about 9000 books, this is a big job. Yesterday I had some fabulous 6th graders helping me! They did a great job and I knew they could handle the Dewey Decimal system and get things in order because I taught them myself and they all passed my Dewey quizes (relay races) last year.  Thank you to Thomas, Pablo, Sadie, Rita, Mila and Katelyn!

The Living Stations

Here is a prime reason I love working at a Catholic school. Yesterday the 8th grade, who traditionally can be sometimes silly, sometimes rowdy, sometimes…well you get the picture (they’re middle schoolers!), put on the living Stations of the Cross for the entire school and visiting special persons and grandparents. It was so moving and so beautiful and each student played his and her part with quiet dignity. Every year I think it won’t happen again, but once again I was moved to tears at the end when the student choir sang  Were You There just before we all silently filed out of church. Blessings to all this Easter season!

Author Visit!

We were thrilled to host Mary Reinhart, author of The Magical Love Box, in the St. Eugene Library this week! “Miss Mary” read her book to the 2nd grade and they all loved it and her. Entralled by the story, they had many comments and questions along the way. At the end, they received their own love boxes to make. And we are so fortunate that Mary will also return to share her wonderful story with 5K and 1st grades in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Birthday Book!

Ryan generously donated The 7th Garfield Treasury by Jim Davis. Here he is along with some of his friends showing off his purchase. The very popular Garfield books fly off the shelves so we are always in need of more! The 7th grade boys are displaying the 7th Garfield Treasury and we are so happy to have this book in our collection. Happy Birthday, Ryan!
