We will also have a bookmark decorating contest. There will be one winner from each grade level. The winners will be able to pick out a free book ($10 or under) from the Scholastic book fair in March. See below for contest rules.
Bookmarks should be on 3"x 8" cardstock or construction paper The bookmark has to be your own design with no tracing or copying images The design should promote reading, books or the library The design can be color or black and white Name, grade level and teacher's name should be written on the back of the bookmark All entries are due by Friday, February 27th Winners will be announced Monday, March 7th.
Parents, please help make this day a success by coming to the classroom to read books with the kids. You can bring your own book(s) from home or Mrs. Teal, our librarian, can provide some books. The kids REALLY enjoy this event! (Note: length of time slots varies based on grade level)
