Hip Hip Horray!!!

April is School Library Month.  I am so excited about all the great things we have accomplished this year with in our Riverbend Media Center!

  • Learning new fun ways to use our iPads– QR Codes and Photo Albums

  • First Grade Beginning of the Year Powerpoints

  • Reading Night– Pirate Read Aloud/Parent Read to Achieve Information

  • Researching Civil War and Slavery with 4th Grade

  • Mrs. Northrup’s class– Book Commericals

  • Pageturners After School Reading Club

  • Caught YOU Reading Awards

  • Researching Animals with First and Second Grade

WOW! That is only a small portion of what we have done this year.  I am very excited for our Literature Week Celebration on April 14th-April 18th.  We will be celebrating reading and our library through learning about our local mountain heritage.  We will have a local author and many other local artisans coming to present and talk with us.  Below is a link to one of Riverbend’s favorite authors talking about how important our school library is to Riverbend.

Aaaarrgghh! It is a pirates life for me!

Tonight Riverbend staff will be hosting a Read To Achieve Reading Night for Kindergarten through 3rd grade students.  Students and parents are invited to attend and learn more about the new Read to Achieve law for North Carolina and participate in some fun activities.  Students are encouraged to dress in their pj’s for a “Reading Night, Slumber Party”.  There will be a Readers Theater performed by the staff (with costumes)!! My friend, Pirate Book, will be reading one of her favorite pirate stories to the kids!! It should be a “swash-buckling” good time.  So parents and students in K-3rd Grade come on out tonight at 5:30 for pizza and then 6:00-7:00 activities will start.
