Hello St. Isidore School Families!
The time is finally here for your child to check books out of our school library! Below is information regarding our school library.
→ Kindergarten through 8th grade will begin checking books out beginning the week of September 9. Pre-Kindergarten will begin checking books out in January. Pre-School will not be checking books out at this time.
→ Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 1st grade students will receive a plastic zipper bag to keep their books in after they are checked out. The books should be returned in this bag the following week on their library day. Grades 2-8 will take books to and from school in their school bags.
→ Book care and use will be reviewed in library class, please help keep our school library in “good shape” when using your child’s checked out book at home. Feel free to keep the book in the plastic bag when it is not being read.
→ Books are due back the following week at your child’s scheduled library time. If your child is absent, they can return it on their next library day.
→ If a child wishes to renew their library book, they must bring it in on the library day and let me know that they wish to renew. However, if there is a waiting list for the book, it will not be able to be renewed.
→ There is a late fee of five cents (.05) per week if a book is not returned. No library fine will be collected for days a child is absent or if school is closed.
→ If a book becomes damaged while signed out of the library, the student is responsible for the cost of the replacement of the book. Please contact me at Eslabek@stisidoreschool.com or send a note into school with your child addressed to Mrs. Slabek so that arrangements can be made to pay for the lost or damaged item.
Scholastic Book Fair
→ Our school hosts two Scholastic Book Fairs during the school year, one during Catholic Schools Week and one in the spring during Teacher Appreciation Week. Information regarding these fairs will come home with students prior to both events.
I look forward to working with your child and sharing the joys of books, reading and learning!
Mrs. Emily Slabek
