Earth Day Book Swap!

The Earth Day Book Swap was a giant success! An overwhelming majority of students participated in the Earth Day "Renew, Reuse, Recycle!" Book Swap! Students brought gently used books that were too easy for them, or didn't want to reread, and swapped them for a brand new book to take home and keep! It was a win win. Mrs. Fournier is so happy with how it turned out, and hopes to celebrate Earth Day the same way next year. Happy Reading!

Book Swap

The Art Department and the Library have joined forces to co-host an Earth Day Festival! There are two fun activities happening- you can choose to participate in one or both!

Want to refresh your home library? Bring gently used books between Monday, April 18and Thursday, April 21st. On Thursday, students can come back to shop- bring one book, take one book. Bring 5 books, take 5 books! This is a great way to show our students we can reduce, re-use and recycle.

There will also be a gallery walk happening in the library that day. This is the 2nd annual Forest North Recycled Art Contest. Bring art made of objects found at home that incorporates reusing and recycling!

Below you will find a flyer with all of the information for both projects. Feel free to print a copy to use as your registration for the Art contest. Each art project will need to have the bottom portion attached to the project so that we know who wins and who to return the projects to. All participants win a prize, and 10 lucky winners will be selected to come celebrate in the library with a special prize pak full of earth-loving goodies!

See you there, Eagles and can't wait to see all of your creative art projects!

Audrey and Stephanie teach!

Audrey Bibb and Stephanie Ro are future teachers! They wrote a few summaries of Junie B. Jones books. Mrs. Fournier noticed that the kids in Ms. Moran's first grade class were really loving Junie B. Jones books, and had an idea. She asked Audrey and Stephanie to continue writing summaries, and to make them super exciting to get Ms. Moran's class interested in reading lots of books. Audrey and Stephanie got to work! They wrote and typed all their summaries, then emailed them to Mrs. Fournier. Ms. Moran was happy to host Audrey and Stephanie. Here they are showing the excited first graders all about their favorite protagonist- Junie B. Jones! Way to go, girls. We love your hard work and your love of reading. Thanks for sharing it with younger Forest North Eagles!
