Welcome back!

We are back from our Winter and wintry break and I hope you spent some time relaxing with a good book.  Let me know if there is a one from Scholastic you would like me to buy for the library from the bookfair profits!

Have a Wonderful Winter Break!

Winter Break time is here with holidays, seeing people we love and lots of time to rest and READ.  Doesn't get any better!  When we come back the library will have some fun new books from having the Scholastic Bookfair,  Thank you for supporting the library by going to the bookfair!  Special thanks to Mr. NG, Ms. Castellanos, Ms. D'Mello and Mr. Oropeza for bringing their classes. Our fabulous student volunteers made it possible to be open at lunch:  Nataly, Mynae, Emmanuel, Stephanie and Daniela. Don't forget to go to your public library on your break! : )

Happy Fall!

Students, there will be a Scholastic Bookfair coming the week before Winter Break...keep it in mind and save your money:  Books make great presents!  By the way, another way to get a great book is to participate in library contests (and grateful to First Book for the books!).  Thanks to those who wrote an epitaph for the fall contest, and there will be a poetry/ornament contest in December.  Pick up your Diamante Ornament form in the library right after Thanksgiving break.  See you in the library!

Congratulations, Class of 2015!

Foshay Family congratulates of all of our hard-working, persevering 5th and 8th grade culminators and high school graduates. Keep your eyes on your dreams! You are the hope for the future, and the world never needed its community-minded young people more. At Foshay, an International Baccalaureate school, our community extends to the world. We are:
Thinkers, Open-Minded, Inquirers, Reflective, Balanced, Risk-Takers, Knowledgeable, Caring, and Principled Communicators. And we're proud of you!

This is the end of the school year and the library needs all of its materials returned in order to take an accurate inventory.  Teacher and students, please look for any library materials you may have and return them as soon as possible.  Remember, you need a cleared record to participate in graduation and culmination activities.  If you owe books to other schools, or think you have received notices in error, please come to see Ms. Whelpton.  See you @ the library!

April is Poetry Month!

April is Poetry Month and your library has a wonderful selection of poetry books!  April 30th is Poem in Your Pocket Day, which was started in New York City, as a way for people to share a love of poetry.  On one day a year everyone carries a copy of a favorite short poem to share with everyone.  Why let New York have all the fun?  Check out all the other fun things they do for April, here:


Come to the library to print out copies of a good poem you find online, or get a book of poems!  You will have time to choose one to keep in YOUR pocket April 30th!  There will be fun surprises for anyone who participates in Foshay's Poem in Your Pocket Day.  That means adults, too!
