Clippers Read to Achieve

Big Thank You! to Ms. Tigalo's 5th grade class for delivering all the prizes for participating in last year's Read to Achieve program created by the Clippers basketball team.  The Clippers are continuously supporting students in language arts achievement, especially self-selected reading. Reading for fun has been shown to improve reading, writing, vocabulary and test cores across the subjects. We are grateful to the Clippers for the school supplies and books to help our participants READ, WRITE, AND REALIZE their dreams!

Welcome Back!

Students, we are going to have the best year ever @ Foshay learning Center. Thank you for all your participation in library contests, reading programs, and for using your library to keep stre-e-e-etching your brain with books you chose yourself.  If this is your first year here, please get a note from any teacher to come to the library at lunch and check it out, (upstairs above the Main Office).  I will make you a permanent lunch pass from the note.  If you are in 6th grade and came to Summer Bridge, I am making all of you permanent passes.  See you in the library! -Ms. Whelpton

BOGO Bookfair

Foshay Family, the Scholastic Buy One Get One Free Bookfair was our most successful ever! Although the library doesn't earn free books from it as it does from our Christmas bookfair, that does mean we got lots of bargains on books and fun school supplies, and had a wonderful time.  We sold $2,600 of books and supplies, so that translates to at least $5,000 in new books being enjoyed in our community. If you know anyone who thinks they don't like to read, make sure you bring them to the next bookfair to show them how much fun books can be.  Thank you to all the science teachers who fit the bookfair into their busy schedules!
