Last Day!

As excited and ready as we all are for summer, there is always a little sadness at the end of the year. We have recently said good-bye to a class of students who will only return someday, almost unrecognizable, for a quick hello and a search for their favorite elementary school teacher. The rooms are cleaned and organized, the halls are quiet. The library’s displays and bulletin boards have been taken down, the books are lined up on the shelves in perfect military order, and the story corner stands empty. But we are ready to renew ourselves over the summer and make new plans and new goals. The “New Books” shelf stands ready, armed with fiction and non-fiction selections for readers who will be eager to check them out.  And always, there will be readers. 🙂 Happy Summer and Happy Reading!!

    We need your summer wish list, Mrs. Boyle! What are the top twenty books you need replaced? I challenge twenty SES families to replace one book per kid! Go!

  2. Thanks so much, Carla! I don’t have a list of titles because I keep current with the books recommended by the book reviewers BUT we need to replenish our non-fiction section! We can use very current books ( for elementary school/middle school students and published recently) on technology, computers, science, sports and athletes, jokes and riddles, and history.
    Also for younger grades: books on planets, science, nature (plants, trees), insects, fish and mammals.
    And the number one book I need for kindergarten students is: Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann! It was so well-loved and fell apart right after I had finished spending this year’s budget.
