Back to School 2016-2017
The library program has some exciting opportunities coming up for your child this year:
I will be promoting the very best of children’s literature to your child with activities designed to help students enjoy the stories even more.
I will be doing my very best to get (or keep) your children “hooked on reading” by recommending specific reading materials to each individual.
We will add 100 or more new titles this year of the latest and most exciting new books for young readers, including quality non-fiction to support the Standards of Learning..
At each grade level, students will be learning research and computer skills specifically suited to their developmental level.
I will be working with classroom teachers to help them find materials especially suited to the individual interests and abilities of your child.
Library lessons will stress good Digital Citizenship, helping your child make safe and ethical decisions when using the Internet.
The Cassell Literacy Committee, in collaboration with the library, has a lot of special events being planned, including a family night, book fairs in October and April, and reading incentives and contests.
If you would like to volunteer to help in the library, please let me know. I’d love to have you.
