January was Principled

Students, in January we focused on the IB student quality Principled, which means being a person of honor, fairness and integrity.  The winners of  the Library "Principled Bookmark Contest" were Jordan P.,third,  Steve M., second, and Zyren M., first place. Congratulations, and all participants received wonderful new books from First Book, a generous organization putting books into the hands and homes of students nation-wide.  First place also won a USB drive, and the top three bookmark designs will be used in the library throughout February.

February is Thinker and Knowledgable Month:  A good time to put on your thinking caps and use your cabeza!  See you at the library!

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
