Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
Welcome back to another fun filled year! The role of the school librarian has changed in many ways over the past years. My responsibilities include not just checking in and out books, but also supplementing many learning experiences to enhance NJ Core Curriculum Standards.
Each month I will be expanding on a different subject. September and October will be geared towards reading skills with Kindergarten through 3rd grade. 4th grade will spend a week on the setting of Bud, Not Buddy. The rest of September and October will be studying different aspects of citizenship, bringing us into the presidential Election. I will be discussing citizenship and the election with K - 3rd towards the end of October through November.
Please check the Library Newsletter each month for our latest ventures. Also, remember to help your child bring their books back on time.
Thank you, Mrs. Albanese
