Library classes for grades K-5 meet for 35 minutes each week. We alternate between a Lesson Week and a Book Circulation Week.
Mrs. Gaiewski also collaborates with teachers to create research and technology projects.
Beginning second quarter, Kindergarteners borrow one book each library class. When students return their book they may borrow a new one. If they forget their book, they can enjoy it until the next library class.
Grade 1 borrows 1 book for two weeks.
Grade 2 borrows 2 book for two weeks.
Grades 3 - 5 borrows 2 books for 2 weeks and they may borrow a magazine.
It is the student's responsibility to take care of his/her books and return them to the library on the due date. The due date is written in the back of the book. Library homework is to return books on the day they are due. If a book is damaged in any way, please return it as soon as possible to Mrs. Gaiewski.
