“Be a Leaper, not a Slider”

Perhaps you have seen the wall display outside of the library.  There are two frogs.  One is leaping for joy, while the other is sliding down with a big X across his body.  The display is there to remind students to read over the summer.  Studies have shown that a child that reads over summer break can boost his reading skills.  On the other hand, a child that does not read can lose skills that he has learned during the school year.  Please encourage your child to “be a leaper, not a slider”. 

 
April Library News
April just seemed to fly by in the library.  Classes were busy celebrating National Library Week, National Parks Week, Earth Day, Arbor Day, and “Poem in Your Pocket” Day.  Poetry was celebrated the entire month as April is National Poetry Month.  Classes in kindergarten through fifth grade learned of  Hans Christian Andersen and his contributions to children’s literature.
