Mrs. Bonnie's Library

 

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

When you come visit the school I know you must enjoy seeing the airbrush artwork in the school and on the sidewalks  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 you 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. We will have a 2nd one in March when they receive their 3rd report card.  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, too. Thank you for sending a quarter or more, 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 a green or red mark on the bottom of 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 receive Brag tags for hard work done in Accelerated Reading, for perfect attendance, for buying books at the Book Fair, for participating in the Reading Fair Competition, for acts of kindness, and for other reasons. Thanks to you for allowing them to buy some 25 cent suckers in the library, one lucky student received $200 last year.  This year $300 will be given away. Every student who earns 40 Brag Tags gets their name put in the drawing for that big amount of money. So we are still selling suckers. The money is definitely put to good use!

BOOK FAIR

 

Our first Scholastic Book Fair was October 15 - 19, the week after we returned from Fall Break!  Books for all ages, posters, pens, pencils, erasers, and other novelties were for sale during the Book Fair.  The profit 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. 18. We were busy! It was awesome. Many thanks to Mrs. Christy Kimmons, from Minden, LA, for volunteering during the week to help.  So many Brag Tags were given out for buying books! We had a large amount of $1 and 50 cent books sold. Thanks so much, parents. We sold over $2500 worth of merchandise. We chose to take the cash profit for our efforts, about $620, to help Mrs. Seale buy things needed for LES.

READING

 

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!)

POETRY CONTEST

 

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

Some of the 1st -4th graders had an opportunity to write Haiku poems that were mailed off to Boise, ID, Fri., March 11, to see if their poem might be included in the 2018 Poetry Digest.  I feel confident that we will have a lot of our students' poems in this fall's copy of the 2018 Young Americans’ 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.
