Mrs. Bonnie's Library

Welcome to the LES Library site.  I am Mrs. Bonnie.

When you come visit the school I know you will love the air brush art work and the pictures that have made our campus so beautiful!  Part of that was made possible by funds generated by the Scholastic Book Fairs that were held last year.  Many thanks to the parents who allowed your children to purchase books, novelties and posters from the Book Fair.  We will be having Book Fairs again this year starting in October during the week when your child gets their 1st report card, October 17 - 21.  I'm so glad Mrs. Seale could use the funds to do something so awesome for our students!   Money generated by selling suckers for 25 cents in the library will help fund  projects again this year. Thank you for sending a quarter now and then for your child to buy a sucker when they come to the library.  When choosing a sucker from the box, they will always get a sucker, but sometimes they choose one that has green or red mark on the stick.  That means they get a little something extra, too.  It makes buying a sucker a fun event.  Every little bit helps to fund wonderful things that Mrs. Seale thinks of to do for LES students.  So many students received money for hard work done in Accelerated Reading last year and they got to eat lunch with their principal!!  That was thanks to you for allowing them to buy some 25 cent suckers in the library. This year will be no different.  We are still selling suckers.

Our first Scholastic Book Fair was October 16 - 20, the week after we returned from Fall Break!! WOW!!  Books for all ages, posters, pens, pencils, erasers, and other novelties will be for sale during the Book Fair.  The profits from the selling of these items helps to fund wonderful things that Mrs. Seale comes up with to motivate our students to be and to do their best.  Thanks for sending some money for them to spend and for coming out in such a HUGE way the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 19.  WOW!!  Were we busy!  It was awesome.  So many Brag Tags were given out for buying books!  Thanks so much, parents.  We sold over $3,000 worth of merchandise.  We chose to take the cash for our efforts, about $800 goes to help Mrs. Seale buy things needed for LES.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year of reading great books to your students!  I trust that I can instill a love for reading in their lives.  Ask them at the dinner table if they heard a good book read today.  Ask them if they have a favorite character from a book that Mrs. Bonnie has read or if they have a favorite author?  Tell them about one of your favorite books or authors from your childhood.  **Here's an idea...let them see you reading a book, or you and your child read a book together...a little each evening.  (Just an idea to encourage reading in your home!)

*****************************************************************************************************

The 2017 MS Department of Education Reading Fair will be held earlier this year.  Our school Reading Fair (storyboard) competition will be Monday, Oct. 9 storyboards are due and the judges will judge the boards Tues., October 10.  (This is the day before our Fall Break begins Oct 11- 13.)  First and second place winners will go on to the District Competition held November 17, the Friday before we get out for Thanksgiving Holidays.  It will be held at Roosevelt State Park at Alfredo Lodge in Morton, MS.  The first place winners only will advance to the Regional Reading Fair Competition held sometime in the month of January at MSU Kahlmus Additorium in Meridian. (The exact date has not been decided yet.)  The State Competition will be the third Tuesday in February...Feb. 20th.

Haiku-Japanese Poetry / 3 lines / 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables / pretty easy

Some of the 1st -4th graders will write Haiku poems that were mailed off to Boise, ID, Fri., March 11, to see if their poem might be included in the 2017 Poetry Digest.  I feel confident that we will have a lot of our students' poems in this fall's copy of the 2017 Young American's Poetry Digest, if you parents mail the signed permission form back in time. The company will send the letters of notification to our school and we will send the letter home by your child for you to have the opportunity to have their poem in the book and to buy a book(s) if you want to.  You do not have to buy a book for your child's poem to be printed in it.  Mrs. Bonnie would love for you to come by and look at our copy to see your child's printed poem. We can even make a copy of that page for you. The books are mailed to you sometime in the month of October.  The 1st place winners from the District Reading Fair who will go on to the Regional are:
