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!

BOGO Bookfair!

People have been asking when the next Buy One Get One Free Bookfair will be and it's almost here!  Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, the 17th of March, will be the start of the BOGO Bookfair.  It will be here in the library ALL the next week, too, until Thursday the 25th.  Middle school will be scheduled to come in with their science teachers, but anyone COME WITH A PASS during class and lunch.  We will also be open after school.  It's BUY ONE GET ONE FREE FOR ANYTHING!  Don't forget to save your money, because books make good Easter presents.  See you at the library!

Students, do you know what A-G Requirements are?  You are missing out if you don't!
Check out this link and see what you need to be doing RIGHT NOW and through high school in order to get into college.  What you do now matters!  A-G Requirements for College

If you can recite the A-G to Ms. Whelpton after school, you will get a raffle ticket to enter a contest for prizes! You might win a free book (courtesy of First Book) or a  flash drive!  Why not try it? You need to know A-G anyway.  The raffle will be on Valentine's Day.
