What’s Okay to Do with Our School Technology?

Welcome back, everyone! As we begin the year, we have to talk about our Acceptable Use Policy.  All students received a copy from their homeroom teachers.  After we discuss it in library class (and hopefully after you read it through with the adults at your home), we’ll be playing this Kahoot! game to make sure we understand why we have an “AUP.”

Students in grades 3-6, please click on the link below when Mrs. Barrett invites you to!


Guess What Arrived Today?

It might be summer (and I hope you’ve found something to read that you ENJOY), but that doesn’t mean that the Sippican library is quiet. We have had so many boxes of new and exciting books arrive this summer! Thanks to the Vocabulary Day fundraiser we were able to order many, many new titles that are just waiting to get checked out in September. And MOST exciting is the arrival of the 8th Harry Potter book! It was waiting for me today when I came in to check my mail and do some organizing.  I can’t wait to get home and start reading! Have any of you finished it?  What did you think?

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you soon.  Remember, we have some awesome ideas for summer reading on our book lists. They are posted up at the top of this website if you’ve lost your summer sheet!

Busy Library – Busy School!

Wow, what a month it has been! The library has been hopping with fourth grade students preparing for their zoo projects, fifth grade students working on American Revolution biography projects, first graders learning about many different types of folk tales, second grade practicing with finding books in our Alexandria online catalog, and third graders showing what they’ve learned about finding materials in the library.  We’ve also received some very special fundraising funds from Vocabulary Day 2016.  Thank you to everyone who participated!  As we prepare for summer reading and the closing of another year, which books should the library add to its collection?  Do you have a suggestion for an author, book, series, or audiobook that we don’t already have?  If so, click on the link below and tell me about it.  I’d love to hear your suggestions!  You can also write them on the bulletin board in the library.
