Happy Birthday, Mrs. Falk!

diane

It’s not just students who can become a member of our Birthday Book Club!  Anyone can! This year, Mrs. Falk generously donated I Am Malala (Young Readers Edition) by Malala Yousafzai. This book is extra special because it will fit in beautifully with our books and activities from our Global Awareness Grant . Much more on that later. Many thanks to Mrs. Falk for being such a great supporter of the St. Eugene Library.

Have you ever had a day when the weather is cold and blowing and dreary and you just wished you could stay home in bed? Well, we had the next best thing with Pajama Day! All students and teachers were encouraged to come to school in their pajamas. It’s probably the most anticipated day of the school year and it contributed to a very happy Catholic Schools Week!

What a blast we had yesterday celebrating Catholic Schools Week with a Literacy Day! Each student was able to dress as his or her favorite book character and bring that book to school for a parade and a sharing time with their Guardian Angels. There were so many fabulous costumes! We had a Very Hungry Caterpillar, Clifford, Katniss Everdeen, a Conductor, Darth Vader, Paddington Bear, Chicka Chicka Boom Booms, Little Red Riding Hood, a President, Tom Sawyer, Winnie the Pooh, A Rainbow Fish, Mother Goose, Things One and Two, several Harry Potters and way too many more to list them all here.  Sorry some of the photos are a little blurry-the parade was moving fast! Happy Reading, Everyone!

Ahoy There, Matey!

tristan

Tristan is a champion Hidden Treasure Reader! He has completed four books and won several prizes. We are so proud of him for taking a chance on some old, and great, books we have in our library. Hidden treasures all have a gold star on their spine which indicates a classic, a seldom read (but wonderful) book or an older book that we keep on the shelf because it is such a worthwhile read. Tristan liked all the books, but he told me that he liked the classic fantasy, The Rescuers, the most. Tristan read:

The Call of the Wild by Jack London
Ships Boy With Magellan by MIlton Lomask
The Rescuers by Margery Sharp
Clara Barton, Girl Nurse by Augusta Stevenson

Aaargh! I will have to buy more prizes!:) Way to go, Tristan!

It’s a Birthday Book Club Bonanza! Here is Charlie with a beautiful new copy of The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses by Paul Goble. Charlie has generously donated this wonderful book in honor of her birthday and we are so happy to receive it. This mysterious and gorgeous tale of the Native American girl who loved horses so much that she longed to live among them, has been popular with readers since 1978. It is a timeless classic. Happy Birthday, Charlie!!
