AUGUST LIBRARY NEWS
Welcome back to another school year! Students and staff can look forward to new books, magazines, and periodicals in our school’s library this year. Due to the success of last year’s Scholastic Book Fairs, new library books have been purchased with Scholastic rewards dollars. A wide array of fiction and non-fiction on varied levels will be added to our school’s collection. The library will also be making resource purchases throughout the school year in order to ensure our students have updated access to a variety of books, and other materials.
Elementary library students, PK-6, will once again come to the library each week to check out books and learn key library skills. Junior High and High School students can check out as money books as needed at their convenience throughout the school day.
Just a reminder of our check out policy:
- Students are allowed to check out 2 books each week. More books can be checked out on an individual basis.
- Books are due 2 weeks after the check-out date.
- Students who have overdue materials are not allowed to check out new materials until the late items are returned or checked out again.
- No fines will be charged for late books however students who have lost or damaged their library books will be required to pay for them. Bills will be sent home if these issues arise.
IPad, Laptop, and Chromebook carts are located in the library for student and staff use. Everyone must check out these materials with Mrs. Anderson at the circulation desk before taking them out of the library. All of these devices are due back by 4 pm each school day. Students who fail to adhere to the device checkout procedures, will lose their device checkout privileges for 1 week.
The Pizza Hut Book It Program will once again be coming to Allen Elementary School! Students PK-6 will receive calendars to fill in each month to mark off according to reading goals set by their classroom teacher. Last year, teachers assigned students a nightly minute goal. The program official runs from October-March. Look for your child’s Book IT! calendar in late September.
