It's been a while!

Things sure have been busy at RHES library! We are nearing the end of the school year, and I apologize that I have not been doing a great job posting this year. But here are some exciting highlights!

Our Makerspace has been successful again this year, and with a defined space and a Lego wall. Students come in at their recess to Make!

Our Step Up club has been creating tie blankets to donate to the Waukesha Humane Society!

Our One Book, One School just wrapped up after the entire school read the Boxcar Children book #1. I have never had so many Boxcar series books circulated! I dusted off the collection and kids are loving it!

Battle of the Book was another great success this year. Our top team scored in the top 50 in the state! Way to go team!!

This year has just been flying by! And did I mention I am expecting baby #3? I will be glad to put my feet up this summer and come back to an exciting fall and a baby girl in October!

Book Love Notes

This week, my 4th graders are writing Book Love Notes inspired by this blog. They got a heart shaped cutout to write a note to a future reader who might LOVE the book they chose. They wrote a letter, cut out the heart, and strategically placed them in books for other readers. They are so excited to find a book with a note and have others find them too!
