Check It Out at the Library
- Our first few weeks will be spent reviewing procedures for the library. We will review book care tips. We will learn the best way to choose a book that is "just right." Our students in PreK, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade will be reviewing various parts of a book and library vocabulary. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5, will also learn about the new William Allen White nominees, doing self-checkout, and participating in Battle of the Books.
- We will start Battle of the Books at the end of September. This is open to all third, fourth, and fifth graders. The link below contains all 64 titles on this year's list. They are available in our library and also on a special shelf at various branches of the Wichita Public Library. A link to the WPL online catalog is also below to see which branches have the titles you are looking for in their collection.
- Our first book fair will take place during Parent Teacher conferences on Oct. 25, 26, and 27.
