Welcome, Wildcats! Happy Poetry Month! We love poetry here at Oglethorpe, and we have lots of fabulous poetry oriented centers for you to explore when your class visits the library. You can write poems, decorate poems, & read poetry all month long. Remember, if you would like to check out a poetry book, you can find them in the 811’s and 821’s.
This morning our fifth grade school champions traveled with Mr. Todd and me (Mrs. Sugiuchi) to Clarke Central High School to participate in the District Battle of the Books. We are so proud of their hard work! Make sure to congratulate Aida, Tavia, Leo and Jay for representing the Wildcats in the last battle.
Exciting news! Our intern Clarissa Raybon and I were awarded a grant from First Book UGA. We will be able to purchase books for all of our CLASE students to read with a mentor and take home next semester. We so appreciate Ms. Clarissa’s help, not just with this grant but for all her hard work. Make sure you thank our interns (Todd, Clarissa, Jane, Molly,Shelby, Kristina, and Laura Frances). They help make our LMC great!
And lastly, thanks to all of our students and teachers and families. It’s an honor to work with all of you!
PS: Super thanks to everyone for supporting our book fair. We raised nearly a $1000 which we will use to buy supplies and pay for special programming for our LMC.
