WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! It is so exciting to be starting a new school year! Over the next few weeks students will be making new friends and adjusting to their new teachers, routines, and class procedures. They will be exploring new genres, digging in with text features, what characteristics make a book nonfiction and fiction, and new technology. They will also be checking out books for the FIRST TIME this school year. Checking out a book is a BIG responsibility for a student and a FUN experience. We stress the importance of taking care of thier book(s) by reviewing our book care do's and don'ts from the very beginning of the school year. Please take a moment to look over our policies and procedures. I know this year is going to be EXTRA SPECIAL!
