This week the kindergarteners will hear Beverly Billingsly Borrows a Book, by Alexander Stadler--this is the first week that kindergarten will be checking out library books, so they are very excited about that! Grade 3 is focusing on the moon, in legends and nonfiction. Grade 5 will be working with a print version of the World Book Encyclopedia.
The other community event that may interest you is the County of Los Angeles Public Library's bookmark contest. All classes will hear about it and be offered an entry form. Entries can be turned in at the school office or Pennekamp library until October 26, and at the public library one day later--until October 27. Please visit the public library's website for more information or a PDF of the entry form. All entries must be in blue or black ink only! Winner are honored before the city council, receive a prize, and have their bookmark design duplicated and distributed in the public library for the coming year! This year's theme is "It Came from a Book."
