FVRL Summer Reading Club

 

 

This year's theme is "Motion Commotion".  Registration opens Monday, June 18 and continues throughout the summer.  McCammon kids that register before the end of the school year can bring their summer reading record in to show Mrs. Kushniryk and receive a FREEZIE to enjoy at recess!  

This program is FREE, FLEXIBLE, and there are lots of opportunities to attend special events and win cool prizes!

 

Check It Out!

Our circulation system enables us to search the Library collection from home. We will be reviewing navigation of the Library system with our students this fall and, once we are settled in, I will be happy to show parents how to access it from home as well.

Access the Library online here!

 

Schedule:

The Library is open for part of every day at McCammon.  K-2 classes have a scheduled Library block once a week, but are welcome to use the Open Book Exchanges as well at the discretion of their teachers. 

Open Book Exchange is every morning from 8:15 - 8:30 (after teachers have taken attendance) and 12:25 - 12:55 every afternoon except Wednesdays.  Students can access the Library at this time with a Library pass supplied by their classroom teacher.  

As well, Mrs. Kushniryk is in the Library every day after school for quick exchanges if bussing is not an issue.

Preschool Story Times:

  • Drop-in Story Times are designed for 3 to 5 year olds.  Younger children are welcome if you check with  Mrs. Kushniryk ahead of time.

  • Our Spring schedule came to an end May 25.  We had 20 sessions with a total of 216 "visits" by our preschoolers and their caregivers this school year!  A new schedule will be established in late September and posted here, in the school newsletters and outside Strong Start.  See you in the fall!

Hot Stuff! 

So many books!  We try bring in new titles regularly and try to keep up with all the popular series.  If your child has been hooked by a particular book, encourage them to let Mrs. Kushniryk know so she can look for copies, sequels and similar titles.  Some of our most popular books are part of the "Branches" set of series.  These are great novels for kids ready to transition to chapter books.  Dragon Masters, Owl Diaries, Eerie Elementary are three examples of the different series.

 

Home Reading:

Our final Super Reader Assembly is Monday, June 11.  We will be recognizing 33 new 100 night readers and 78 250 night readers.  This is nearly double last year's 250 night total -- way to go McCammon kids and parents!

We also achieved our 150 night goal to earn our FREE hot dog lunch!  In fact, we had 134 150 night readers--that's more than 10% over the number we needed to earn our lunch.  Great job everyone!  Lunch will be served Wednesday, June 13, courtesy of the Kiwanis Club and the Salvation Army.  A big thank you to these organizations for supporting our efforts to increase reading participation at McCammon! 

 The single greatest indicator of school success is regular reading practice at home.  Whether students are reading to themselves or someone else, or being read to – it all makes a positive difference. 

Reading Link Challenge

We are again partnering with FVRL to present the Reading Link Challenge for grade 4 & 5 students.  2018 - 2019 titles will be announced and arrive in our Library in early November.
