Although there is only a month left in the school year, we still have exciting things happening at the SES Media Center.
Our last reading log collection date is April 30th for the Million Minute Challenge. Great news! We have already surpassed 1,000,000 minutes!!! Remember, the top readers receive recognition and medals at Awards Day; the top classes in each grade receive a popcorn & movie party; the top class gets to design a celebration. Our Dance Party to celebrate our Million Minutes will be held during specials time on Friday, May 11.
Summer is almost here, and so is the Summer Reading Challenge!! We’ll be using Biblionasium to record reading minutes during summer. Each student’s goal is 1,500 minutes. Turn Summer Slide into Summer Boost! I’ll teach Biblionasium during the next two weeks of Media Center lessons. We’ll have great prizes for those of you who meet that challenge.
What are you going to read this summer? Here are three great options:
The Great Smyrna Book Exchange starts Monday. For the next two weeks, you can donate gently used books. Donations will be received outside of the office before school. Then, during the week of May 7, you can select a book from those donated. Donate one book; select one book. Donate five books; select five books!
The Scholastic BOGO book fair will be held May 14-May 18, 7:15-3:00 every day. It will be open during Awards Days! Unfortunately, we will not have any Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl books for next year, but we’ll have lots of fantastic options.
The SES Media Center will be open once a week during Summer Break! We’ll post days/times soon!
