Welcome to a new school year! Thank you for all you have done to encourage your student to read. Did you know that students who read 20 minutes per day typically score in the 90th percentile on standardized tests? They also learn 1,800,00 new words per year!

In the library, we have been working with our kindergarten and first grade classes on how to use the room and take care of their books. Our second, third, fourth, and fifth graders are reviewing Fargo Public Schools’ Acceptable Use Policy, discussing how to use school technology appropriately.

We are looking forward to our pumpkin drawing in October—each student can enter the drawing to win a pumpkin by illustrating a pumpkin picture. In November, we will host the “Enchanted Forest” Scholastic book fair. Please consider volunteering!

Thank you all for encouraging your students’ love of reading and instilling in them the responsibility of returning their books on time. We anticipate a great year of learning, reading, and growing in the library.

Sincerely,

Library Media Center Staff
