What a great October we have had in the library. Lots of new books have hit the shelves and lots of fun activities to explore in our new space. Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes spent the past two weeks participating in The Great Pumpkin Tower Challenge.  View some pictures here. They were given very limited supplies and had to figure out how to build the tallest tower possible with a heavy pumpkin perched on the top. The students did an outstanding job with an overwhelming amount of creativity. Dojo points were awarded for tallest tower, most creative idea and how well they worked in a team. I am blown away with how well they all did. I am very pleased to announce that a group of 4th graders from Mrs. Zozak's class blew away the competition, used fantastic teamwork skills and built a tower that reached 66cm, Congratulations Max Schrinsky, Matthew Braun, Austin Jarmuz, Josiah Gonzales and Analisa Schweisthal, Mrs. H is very proud of you all. 

Next month we are looking forward to a visit and book signing from Sarah Mlynowski, author of the Upside Down Magic series and Whatever After series. Special price book order forms have already gone home with our 3rd and 4th grade students, get your orders & payment in by Wednesday, October 31st!!   Order Form HERE.

Smaller $1.00 items tend to move the quickest.  Donations can be dropped off in the John Long Middle School office on Monday, November 5th or on Tuesday morning at the Athletic Entrance.  Please sign up at the link below so we can plan accordingly.  If you are not able to bake something, please consider staffing the booth for a shift!

Students in 5K through 3rd grade and parent coaches can register for the 2018-19 LEGO League Jr. season now through Nov. 2. The registration fee is $20. Click here for information about how to register. Teams will be announced in early December. The coach determines the meeting day, time, and location. Your child’s coach will contact you in December to find a day/time that works for the team. If your child can’t attend on the chosen day/time, we will make every effort to move your child to another team.
FIRST LEGO League Jr. is an international program for children in 5K - 3rd grade. It's hands-on and engages children through experimentation and a culture of sharing and learning from others. It goes beyond just “playing with LEGOs”.  After a 12-week season that includes research, building and computer programming, teams have the opportunity to showcase their project at the Grafton LEGO Expo on April 6. 

Grafton also has several FIRST LEGO League teams for students in 4th - 8th grade. The season starts in August and ends in November. Registration for the 2019-20 season will start in May 2019.
