This summer is going by fast. However, there is still August to enjoy activities with family and friends. Please take advantage of reading opportunities as often as you can as we approach another new school year. I am hoping families are attending public library summer programs. I can't think of a better way to spend time together as a  family.  

I sent home a summer reading record to all Minoa students in June. The idea was to keep the reading momentum going by having families share the love of reading with each other. Students were asked to color in all the game board spaces after they completed each way to read alone or with a favorite person or companion. If they bring their reading log back to me in September all filled in and signed by a parent or gaurdian, they would be rewarded with the privilege of  being able to take one extra book out then normal during each of their class times over the course of the school year. I am looking forward to many of these coming back to me so that students can read, learn, and enjoy more of the many high interest books we have in our school library.

September is "Get a public library card month". I will be working with our Minoa Free Library director all year to promote the task of going to your public library with the family to sign up to have each family member own a public library card. My goal is for all students who attend Minoa Elementary to have their own public library card by the end of  the school year. 

The next Book Cooks session for the 2018-19 school year will begin the first week of October. I am always looking for volunteers to help with this program or donate items to help with food preparation. Please email me or contact me at school 315-434-3420 if  you are interested in joining us for some fun with learning about books and  food.
