Scholastic Book Fair

It’s time for our annual Scholastic Book Fair!  

The Book Fair will open Wednesday, October 9th at 6:00PM  in the Learning Commons at Literacy Night.  If you want the best selection of books at our Book Fair, then you want to come to Literacy Night!

All Language Arts classes will visit the Book Fair when it’s open during the school day, so if you can’t come to Literacy Night, you’ll still have the opportunity to come to the Book Fair.

The hours for the Book Fair are:

Wednesday, October 9 –  6:00PM – 7:30PM
Thursday, October 10 – 8:45AM – 1:30PM
Friday, October 11 – 8:45AM – 4:00PM

Sixth Graders became more familiar with the following databases:

*Biography in Context
*DK Find Out!
*Kids Infobits
*Lexile.com

*Novelist K-8 Plus

Remember to use Cobb Digital Library for factual and reliable information!  If you have any questions about Cobb Digital Library, ask Mrs. F in the Learning Commons!

 

 

Welcome to a new year!

Welcome to all new and returning ECMS students!  We hope you had a restful and wonderful summer!

All students will be visiting the Learning Commons in the next few weeks with their Language Arts class.  Check the Learning Commons calendar to see when you will be visiting.  See you soon!
