What a great book fair!

Hey out there, all you happy campers.  What a great book fair we just had!  Thanks so much for dressing up and being excited about books and reading.  Now I can buy you some new books for the library!  Be sure to stop by and let me know if there’s a book we don’t have that you’d like me to get for you.  Also, check out the separate page at the top of the blog for lots of pictures of you all looking fabulous.  🙂  Here are a few from each dress up day.

Happy Camper Book Fair coming soon!

The Happy Camper Scholastic Book Fair will be in the library from February 27 – March 3, 2017. Information will be coming home in backpacks, on listserv, and on the CPES PTO Facebook group.  Meanwhile, here are links to the dress up days and the class visit schedule.  Volunteers are always needed and adored!   🙂  Call Mrs. Shaw or email if you’d like to join us.

Buddha Boards new in the library

We have a new maker space that we are loving!  Buddha Boards.  The philosophy behind them is to enjoy the beauty of the moment and let the worries of yesterday and tomorrow go.  Made of soapstone, the water we use to paint evaporates in minutes leaving us with a clean slate and memories of beautiful things we have created.  Stop by and check them out!

Caught in the act….

…. of reading!  A junior librarian in training sharing her Green Eggs and Ham with classmates.  🙂
