I want to thank everyone for making this year a wonderful, fun, successful year for Spiller Elementary's library! Thanks to everyone, both of our book fairs were a huge success! We couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers who always go above and beyond to help us. I also want to thank everyone for making Read Across America week a week that we will always remember! During Read Across America week, we celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Children were encouraged to participate in our Dr. Seuss dress-up week, in which we got to see many creative costumes! (Pictures are posted below.) You will also see many pictures of our Doughnuts for Dad, Muffins for Mom breakfast program! Thanks to the Title I Reading teachers, every student in the school received a brand new book for Read Across America week. You all rock, Title I Reading teachers!
We also had the pleasure of working with storyteller and folklorist Anndrena Belcher. After the assembly, Ms. Belcher was kind enough to meet with students in the library to give them tips about storytelling and writing.
In February, 5th graders heard the story Lego Man in Space, a true story about two high school boys in Canada who used their math skills to send a Lego man to space. The students then worked with their science teachers on a project that allowed them to "blast off" their own Lego man.
Again, thank you to everyone for making this such a magnificent year! I am already looking forward to what fun the next school year will bring!

More fun in the library!
