Library

We have digitized about our library! If you would like to view our digital site, please visit: St. John's Catalog.

This month students will be learning a variety of things. Students in grades 3-5 will be learning how to use our online catalog. Students in PK-2 will be doing New Year activities, penguins, and learning about the Caldecott Medal. Sixth graders will be starting a fractured fairy tale unit.

Students in grades PreK-K will check out ONE book each week. 
Students in grades 1-3 will check out up to TWO books each week. 
Students in grades 4-6 will check out up to THREE books each week.
Students in grades 7 and 8 are welcome to check out books during one of my free periods or before/after school. 

If students do not return their books on the due date, they will not be allowed to check out new books until the old ones are returned. Students can still browse and set books aside for me to hold for them until they return their other books. 

Thank you to those of you who donated books to our growing and changing library! We are always accepting donations of books. If you have any books you would like to donate, please send them in with your child and we will put a label inside with your family name. We appreciate every donation.

We are utilizing google classroom this year. Many assignments will be done and submitted on google. Many important classroom documents can be found here as well.

Children will have access to their grades on google classroom if the assignment was submitted there.

  • Refugee
    • Students are finishing up Refugee and will be taking their test the week of February 11. The test will consist of multiple choice questions, short answers, and an essay. They will be given 3 choices for the essay and will need to complete one of them. 
  • Our next piece of reading
    • Our next reading will be a play. I am not revealing to the students what it is yet, but we will start this after February break. The only hint they have gotten is that it is historical fiction. We will work on this play for a few weeks. After that we will start our next novel.
