Library Notes
As this school year ends and we make our last newsletter submission, we say “Thank You” for the help all have given this year to the reading sojourn of our students. From this librarian’s perspective, that support has been broad: from encouraging your students’ reading adventures and donating books to the library, making our annual Book Fair a beneficial event, and, of course, getting borrowed books returned. Naturally, as I look forward to inventorying our library collection this summer, I make the usual request for the return of all borrowed books. One last reminder Notice of Books Due will be individually provided, with thanks as SBS Librarian that the books were borrowed in the first place! Enjoy your summer!

Fall Festival Booth Chairperson Meeting
It’s never too early to start preparations for our Fall Festival! We’re having a booth chairperson meeting on Thursday, May 26th, in the 8th grade classroom, at 7:00 pm. This meeting is mandatory for all returning booth chairpersons. We have many openings for new booth chairpersons. Come get information and get involved. Being a booth chairperson is an excellent way to earn your school service hours early in the school year. Booth chairpersons are a valuable part of the team and have a huge impact on our festival’s success. This meeting is a great opportunity to learn more about being a booth chairperson. There will be pizza and soda for all who attend the meeting. Hope to see you there!

No School
There will be no school on Monday, May 30th, in observance of Memorial Day.
Enjoy the long weekend!

May Crowning
We are requesting that students bring flowers for our May Crowning next Tuesday, May 31st.

Library Notes
Won’t leave you wondering….Once again your SBS librarian is requesting family support for the Return of Overdue Books borrowed by their students. Of course, I have mixed feelings as the school year draws to a close, worrying if all the borrowed books will be returned (hopefully by June 2nd), while always happy that students are exercising their minds by borrowing books in the first place. For now though, beyond this newsletter notice, we’ll be doing verbal reminders and individual notes to the borrowers. As always, we remain grateful to your aid.

Spring Sing
Our annual Spring Sing Concert is tonight and tomorrow night at 7:00 pm in the school hall. Students are to report to their classroom at 6:30 pm. There is no assigned seating. Doors will open at 6:30 pm for seat selection. Tickets are eight dollars each. Each classroom has prepared a special art project that will be available for auction at Spring Sing.

Library Notes
“Life has it’s challenges” is a saying that we would all probably endorse. Clearly, in this era of electronic technology with all these so-called “smart” devices at our disposal, we in a small school library would face the challenge of promoting the reading adventure via the book. However, having just attended a gathering of children’s literature aficionados, we learned that many K-8 schools continue to lack a fully functioning library and a librarian. Reliance is on teachers’ classroom collections. However at our school, because of the ongoing support of SBS families and faculty/staff leadership, we can gratefully celebrate that most of our students are making welcome use of both of these available avenues of reading adventure.

Library Notes
It may not yet be Thanksgiving, but with this week’s thoughts comes my thanks for whatever you do to encourage your student’s reading. As you would expect, the Librarian’s raison d’etre is about addressing the reading interests of our SBS community. At the same time, as parents or guardians, we all share that goal as a vital aspect of our children’s learning growth. And, for most of us that journey begins with the shared experience of reading to our children and then setting the early independent example of having shared visits to a library. Clearly, such efforts are promoting both adventure of the mind and launching discovery of the world that exists beyond our immediate reality. Please know, as SBS librarian, that I remain ever grateful for the ongoing support of your student’s use of our school library.

Library Notes
May 1st marks the start of the annual National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, which highlights the importance of healthy lifestyles. For this librarian, this means being attentive to one’s wellness of body, mind, and spirit. While physical activity is clearly nourished by our sunny days, we note the following quote: “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”( Fyi, Richard Steele or Joseph Addison notably penned this thought in their March 1710 English publication, true testament to the longevity of a good idea.) Thus, being so inspired, look for our library hallway display to provide a sample of some books with pertinent nourishment.

Parent Meeting
The last parent meeting for this year is tonight at 7:00 pm in the school hall. There will be a speaker addressing the topic of how to help your child become a lifelong learner.

Library Notes
Springtime invites all to enjoy the outdoors, with the warmth of the sun and invigorating breeze. And yet, a book travels indoors and out, as we are engaged by plot and characters to venture with our imagination. Even a most playfully active child can find enjoyment in the mental movement inspired by an interesting book, be it in the home or under a shade tree. Discovery of such a reading adventure is encouraged through a regular charge-free visit to the SBS Library. Our community has a standing invitation for such an exploration, whatever the season.

After what we hope was a satisfying Easter Break for our SBS community, we now embark on our educational journey to June and our summer hiatus. In this time, however, we will continue to celebrate reading, especially making new books available to our school family. Hopefully they will be of sufficient variety to nourish the diverse reading interests of our readers. Also, in the coming weeks. our library hallway rack display will have books of a renown children’s author, who turns 100 on April 12th. Any idea who that might be?

St. Patrick’s Day
Tomorrow students may wear green shirts, green socks, and green accessories. School uniform navy blue shorts/pants must be worn. For the one day, St. Bridget of Sweden School will be Irish as we celebrate the wearin’ of the green and search for the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow. We will also be sharing the green. The following classes are asked to bring green jello cups: kinder, first and fifth. Bringing green capri sun will be second, third and fourth, and bringing green chips will be sixth, seventh and eighth.

Library Notes:
In this week of the Feast Day of St. Patrick, I am looking forward to celebrating the day with the return of the minimal number of overdue books by this Thursday. And yet, I still rejoice that as of Monday evening, there were only eleven students with overdo books. I am truly grateful for the responsible borrowing that our student borrowers are currently demonstrating. Sadly, however, seven students with overdo books still require a repeat reminder. Hopefully, and appreciatively, today’s notification in the family envelope will have the outcome of the book’s return or replacement payment if lost.
