Announcements:

  • The Texas Bluebonnet books are very high interest items right now, and are often all checked out of the library.  As many of my students are working towards completing the Bluebonnet Rewards Program, I would like to add these titles to my classroom library.  I am asking families to help me with this if you’re able.  If you have any of the books at home that are no longer needed or would be interested in purchasing, we would be very appreciative of your donations.  I have added the Bluebonnet books to my Amazon Wish List.  Thank you for supporting our readers!
  •  We use headphones daily, and several kiddos still don’t have their own set.  Please check with your child to see if they have a pair of headphones.
  • Did you know that all 4th graders (and their families) can get a FREE National Parks pass?  Just register here to claim yours!
  • Here is the 2021-2022 Bluebonnet Books list.  Please encourage your child to read at least 10 of these books by Friday, January 21st, 2022.  There will be a special end of the year celebration for those who read at least 10 books and pass the AR quiz!!  
  • Students should be logging on to Freckle at home to work on ELA skills that we’re covering in class.  If you have any questions about this or how to log on - just ask! 
  • Students should be reading at home each night and taking Accelerated Reader quizzes on the books they complete. They can access the AR quizzes via their Clever account until 6PM.
