Summer Reading

The Summer Reading program kicks off soon!  I will be introducing it to students this week during the morning news (May 13, 2019) and sending home a flyer soon. Links to the flyer as well as the Cobb County Public Library activity guide and paper log  are below. (Use the paper log to note minutes offline and then submit them via Biblionasium as needed.) The Cobb Public Library kick-off party is May 25 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Cobb Civic Center. Visit the Cobb Public Library site to learn more – it will an amazing party! (I cannot wait to check out Fernbank’s Portable planetarium!) Remember to read at least 20 minutes a day. You can do it!  And parents, I invite YOU to read as well. Take a look at the ADULTS link on the Cobb Public Library site! No one is exempt from summer reading and I cannot wait to hear what books have interested you the most. So unplug if you can (eBooks are great too!), read, read TOGETHER, and share with me when I see you in August.

The goal set for each student is to read and log 1500 minutes into Biblionasium. Students will use their student number and computer password to log into the program. If you need assistance with this over the summer break, please visit any Cobb County Public Library.

For more information, visit the county’s summer reading site: www.cobbsummerreading.com

Happy Reading!!

Thank you Representatives!

A huge thank you to Senator Jen Jordan, Representative Erick Allen, and School Board Member Charisse Davis for visiting with our fourth grade students. These students studied their “civic” footprint earlier in the school year and learned about candidates running for specific offices. It was terrific for the students to meet their representatives and hear from them. They took time to read to all of our fourth grade classes and answer many questions about their work as representatives. I know that our students better understand the election process, how to contact the people who represent them, and possibly be inspired to enter public service themselves one day.

Read and Ride!

Come read and ride in the library….. exercise you brain and your body! Perfect for those who complain about falling asleep while reading!

We revealed the “bikes” on the morning news and they have been occupied ALL morning. SO FUN!
