What is the Book Swap?
It is an event where students can bring in paper and/or hardback books they are no longer reading and exchange them for different books brought in by other students. The students’ selection of these “new” titles relies solely on the collection of books brought in for the Book Swap. Participation is a purely voluntary activity for anyone in grades K-5. The Book Swap is held in the media center. Books should be age appropriate for the reading level of elementary students. Please no board books. Those titles not meeting swapping standards are not accepted. Students can start bringing in books on Thursday, April 19. .

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.
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.
