Welcome to the Senatobia Elementary School Library!
My goal in the library is to help your child
develop a love of reading.
Welcome back to a new school year. I am anxiously waiting to see familiar faces and meet the new students and teachers who have come our way. I know you will find our library very comfortable and inviting for our reading activities.
We will begin checking out books as soon as students return the library permission form that will come home for parent signature at the beginning of school. Students will have two opportunities a week to check out books. There is a scheduled morning Open Library time for each class as well as a weekly activity rotation. As you can see, there’s lots of time for reading and checking out books!!!!!
Students will participate in the Accelerated Reader program. Students take a STAR test that will determine individual reading levels and nine weeks point goals. If assigned goals are met, students will be rewarded with an incentive party. We have always had lots of success with this program. Students enjoy reading, testing, and having parties!
We are also planning our 2nd ever SES Read-A-Thon which promotes reading with family and earning funds for the different library reading activities. The students really enjoyed participating in this last school year. We earned $1,700.00 which will support the AR parties that will take place this school year. I expect this fundraiser will be bigger and better this school year!! Just imagine how much money could be raised if each student at SES participated. I will send information home when dates are set for this great event.
Please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office and leave me a message if you need my assistance. I am excited to get to know our SES Warriors and begin a wonderful school year growing and developing our reading skills and reading enjoyment.
Please enjoy the pictures of library activities that the students enjoyed last school year and continue to watch this site for updated pictures and information throughout our 2019/2020 school year.
Please contact the school office if you need my assistance.
