Library

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

This month is all about Thanksgiving and the Book Fair. Our book fair is November 26-30. A schedule will be coming home to let you know what day your child's class will be attending. PreK families-  you will be able to shop with your child before school from 7:15-8:00 and from 2:00-2:30. We will also have evening hours on Thursday, November 29th, from 5:30-7:30. This is a great time to get some Christmas gifts!

If you are willing and able to help out by volunteering for a shift or two at our Book Fair, please use this link to sign up. Parent volunteers will be helping students browse and select book and helping bag purchases. I appreciate all your help and support of our book fair! 

Please visit our Book Fair page here. If you are unable to come in to shop, you can also order online from November 14 - December 4. All orders will ship free to the school (after the online fair ends) and upon arrival will be delivered to your child. (If you would like these kept secret, please email me and we can arrange a time for you to pick up the books.)

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.
