The other big news is that the school year is almost over! The very last day to check out books from the Pennekamp library this year is Friday, June 3. All books are due no later than Friday, June 10. Next week will be the last week of class visits to the library. Parents, please help your students find and return everything from our library--and please return materials borrowed in your own name. District policy requires that I put a hold on the report card of any student who has materials still checked out on the last day of school; the same goes for materials checked out by a parent--I have to hold the library card of that parent's son or daughter. If a book has been lost or damaged beyond repair, please make payment for it in exact change or a check payable to MBUSD. The sooner we can clear this all up, the better! Thanks very much for supporting the library by returning your materials promptly.
Speaking of thanks, I am very grateful for my year-end gift of scrip! I am very touched by your appreciation and generosity. Thank you so much!
Next week, June 9, is the last meeting of the 5th-grade book club. We will be discussing The Wild Robot, by Peter Brown.
