BOBBLE AND WOBBLE

It’s that time of year again!  The Bobble Heads are coming!  Fifth grade every year researches historical figures then creates three-dimensional scultptures of them using plastic drinking bottles and styrofoam balls.  You can see them all around the tops of the non-fiction library shelves.  

ART INSTALLATION ~ IN THE BOOKS

Starting March 1, you will start to see little treasures hidden in the Learning Commons.  Mrs. Rausch’s art students are creating very special weaving and hiding them in the shelves.  They have taken weeded and discarded books and turned them into looms.  They then used string, pipe cleaners and tissue paper to weave a three-dimensional art piece with a little bit of paper folding mixed in between.  We love showcasing student art in our Learning Commons!

READ ACROSS AMERICA *WITH FOOTBALL PLAYERS*

We had a wonderful time yesterday listening to stories read by players from the Kennesaw State University Owls football team.  Players came and read humorous stories to participating classes across grade levels.  Participants included (left to right) :

 

  • Deontae Flood; OL, Atlanta, Georgia
  • Charlie Patrick; LB, Atlanta, Georgia
  • Adesola Abisoye; DB, Loganville, Georgia
  • Tyrik Mitchell; DB, Jackson, Georgia
  • Jacob Potter; LS, Adairsville, Georgia

Coach Stewart Cook is the coordinator for this community service event every year during the week of Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America Week.

HOW SHOULD WE SPEND PROFITS?

Would you like to help us spend the book fair profits? Our first and most important goal is to buy beautiful new books for the Lindsey Learning Commons. And you can help! Remember, everything you shop for provides us with a monetary profit that we will use to directly benefit your child!
 
Students, parents and teachers can vote for their favorite author here:
You may have to sign in your Google account to take this survey.
If it doesn’t work, try this same survey on Survey Monkey.
 
The survey will close Friday, March 16 at 12:00 PM. We will share the results on our Facebook page.

Kids Can Purchase With an E-Wallet

What is the Scholastic Book Fair E-Wallet? It’s so cool! It allows a parent to:
-Securely give money to each of your kids to buy books
-Pre-authorize the amount to control kids spending
-Make funds immediately available for use
-Only get charged for what your child purchases
-Use a credit card remotely for payment
-Receive a refund for any monies not spent

On Friday, February 24, the E-wallet goes live. Go to our book fair homepage and click on the Get Started button next to the blue e cent sign.
