New Library Assistant: Elizabeth Vetter

It is with great excitement that I introduce Forest North's new Library Assistant Elizabeth Vetter! She will be working in the library helping Mrs. Fournier with student checkout, processing new books to get them catalogued into our online system, running the Birthday Book club, helping with our financial records, running fun exciting programs like Armadillo Readers Choice Award (K-2nd) and the Texas Bluebonnet Award (3rd-5th) and a ton of other tasks we do to keep the library fun and running smoothly! She'll be working Monday, Wednesday & Friday afternoons, and Tuesday and Thursdays mornings to maximize flexibility for our students and teachers. I'm so excited she's here and we can start flexible daily checkout for our students! It's been a hectic year starting without an assistant, and she is just starting this week, so please welcome her to Forest North, and bear with us as we do a lot of on-the-spot job training! So glad you're here, Mrs. Vetter!

Tomorrow starts the voting period for the Follett Challenge! Please vote for FOREST NORTH: THE MOVIE once daily. Mrs. Fournier and Fournier's Friends will be organizing our efforts to vote on every single computer in our school once a day, but we need everyone to vote on their home computers as well!

Bookmark our FOREST NORTH: THE MOVIE homepage (http://smore.com/2cgk) with a convenient voting link to make it easy for you:

The voting has a huge reward- the votes, combined with the grades judges give us on our movie and the essays written by Mrs. Fournier & Ms. Fennewald, can earn us up to $60,000 to spend on our library and technology for classrooms! We would like to start an eBook collection, buy some playaways for students to checkout (they're like an iPod with one book already downloaded on it- so fun!), and buy many more books on .mp3 and even refresh our collection with old fashioned paper books, too! $60,000 can stretch a looooong way, so we're open for suggestions on other forms of technology we can buy for the classrooms too!
