Grinch Who-bilation

This week we discussed the book  The Grinch who stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.  Did you know the book was first published in 1957 and that in the book the Grinch was black and white with pink eyes. We looked at the changes that have happen to the Grinch over the last 60 years. We compared the animated versions as well as the live version and discussed the differences in special effects. We completed our time together by playing Grinch Bingo.

Honoring those who serve





Bells Ferry Elementary was proud to recognize our local veterans with a ceremony which
started in the media center with songs by our chorus and readings by our student leaders.
We honored our very own Mrs. Chris Susskind, media paraprofessional and veteran of the United States Air Force with a book presentation. We concluded our event in the parking lot  where all of our students participated with song and flag waving.It was a moving occasion for all those involved. Thank you Sprayberry Jr ROTC color guard.

Cobb Literacy Week

Bells Ferry Library Media Center partnered with Cobb EMC  and Gas South to host author Diane Shore, on Wednesday, October 25. Several of our top summer readers had lunch with the author which resulted in some lively conversations.

Summer Reading Celebration


Bells Ferry Students lassoed the summer reading challenge!   We  recognized fifty-six readers with a special  Reading Celebration that included a Cowboy Breakfast in the Media Center.    These  amazing readers  received certificates and treasure bags.  Congratulations  readers!


September has been a month of discovery at the media center. We have learned the difference in fiction and non-fiction, books, how to use our shelf marker and in order to check-out we have to “Bring one to take one”. Third graders have learned all about genres which helps them locate books in our fiction section which has been genrefied and how to use the Ipad stations to search for book on Destiny.
