Reading Rock Star Party and Upcoming Events

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last Friday we had our Reading Rock Star Party. It was so much fun!  Big thanks to all of our volunteers- I could not have pulled it off without you!

Don’t forget, logs are due this Tuesday, August 23rd!

On September 6, in honor of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, Mrs. Sugiuchi will meet you at the Athens-Clarke County Library to sign up for a library card, explore the library, or just check out books.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

We have two upcoming author events.  On Monday, September 19th, author Lois Ruby will be visiting our 5th grade.  And on Wednesday, September 28th, author Ben Hatke will be visiting our 3rd and 4th grade. Don’t forget to turn in your forms to reserve your own copy of a signed book!

Happy reading!

















Welcome Back!

Hey all, 
Welcome back! Hope you had a great summer! So happy to see our students:).  They will begin visiting the library next week.  We checked out computers and textbooks this week.
Summer reading logs are due tomorrow, Friday, August 12th. August logs are are due August 23. Info about the Summer Reading Rock Star Incentives can be found here. 
Books for Keeps is a local organization that donates 12 free books to every child in our school ( as well as several others).  Their annual fundraising book sale, located in the former Vision Video in Homewood, starts today.  They have lots of great books priced to sell from $.25 to $3. More info can be found here.
We have distributed personal learning devices to every student grades 2-5. They will not start going home until Monday, and then per teacher’s discretion. This is a link to the Learning Technologies Overview, which covers acceptable use guidelines. It will go home in your child’s folder by next week. Please review with your child. 
Please let me know if you have any questions.  Enjoy the rest of your week!
