2nd Semester Happenings

We had great participation for the Winter Reading Challenge – More than 80 students participated and will receive a free ticket for admission to 6 Flags Fiesta Texas, to use this summer.

Lee Alum, Greg Foley – author, illustrator, “visionaire” – visited with 2nd and 6th grade right when we got back from Winter Break.  He was fantastic.  We had alot of fun.  🙂

3rd-5th grade voted for their favorite Bluebonnet Book at the end of January.  Lee’s favorite book was Dead City , by James Ponti.  Followed by The Neptune Project by Polly Holyoke, and a split for 3rd place between The Day the Crayons Quit and Rump:  The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin by Liesl Shurtliff.  Over all in Texas, The Day The Crayons Quit was voted the best Bluebonnet Book!    The Lee Bluebonnet Book Challenge continues.  The deadline is March 23rd.  3rd  – 5th graders are challenged to read more Bluebonnet Books, with prizes awarded in 5 book increments.  Keep Reading!!!

Coming Up:  On Feb. 23rd  Scholastic will sponsor our Book Fair Under the Sea.  This time we will have a Kindergarten Family Night on Monday Feb. 23rd from 5-7pm.  We will have a focus on Leveled Readers and beginning chapter books.  Come by for a pre-bedtime story by one of our staff and milk and cookies.   The Book Fair will run until Thursday evening.  After the 4th grade program we will take down the fair to prepare for an author visit Friday morning.    Book Fair is great fund raiser for Lee Library – it supplements our book and supplies budget and provides funds for Author visits and Reading Challenge Rewards.

Author Visit – Magician, JOSHUA JAY, will visit with 4th and 5th graders on Friday, February 27th.  He will be promoting his new book,  Big Magic for Little Hands.   Orders for the book are in your child’s folder and on the round table in the main hall.  Anyone may order the book – just give your order form to Mrs. Day.

Students in the Library

Students come to the library on a weekly schedule and at other times designated by their teacher.

Students are encouraged to check out one book to read independently and another book of their choice.

Students are encouraged to demonstrate responsibility by returning or renewing books on time and exercising proper care of library materials.

Checkouts are for 2 weeks. A renewal period is available for older students with longer books being used for classroom projects and reports.

Lost books should be reported to the librarian. Arrangements will be made for the student to continue using library books while searching for the lost book. If a book is not found by the end of school, a notice of the cost of the book will be sent home. Paying for lost books will clear student records for the district.

Library Programming

Students are provided with lessons by the librarian related to reading skills, research, curriculum coordination, library usage and appreciation and understanding of the various materials.

Library programming may consist of story time with the librarian, activities to explore and understand the library and visiting authors. Attention is given to various genre of literature and the award winning books such as Newbery, Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Bluebonnet and Lone Star.

AISD Libraries has a very informative website with general information about school libraries -https://sites.google.com/a/austinisd.org/welcome-to-aisd-libraries/

The Library Catalog and Library Resources Link are especially helpful. Lookout for a bookmark with the passwords to the databases in Friday folders during the first few weeks of school.

Supporting the Library

Our Scholastic Book Fair will be held October 19-23 to benefit our library.  Parent assistance is needed to run the cash registers in the morning, afternoon and during Open House.   The library receives a portion of the profits as a credit for books and the remaining portion as funds to be spent as needed to support library programming.

Parents volunteers support the library in a variety of ways.  They are an essential component of our weekly library program.  Their presence allows the librarian to assist more children in finding that “just right book” .  Please see the librarian if interested.  Also, do you have a middle or high school student looking for volunteer service hours?  Ask him/her to see the librarian.  There are always books to shelve.

Parents are welcome to visit the library before and after school to check out books to read with your children.
