Welcome to the Mark West Library page!
A Letter from Ms. Ashley
Welcome back! I am SO excited to be able to have students back in the library this school year! Your student will come to the library once a week for 30 minutes. I will either be reading a story aloud or conducting an activity, then they will have an opportunity to check out books. It is very important that your student remembers to bring their books back every week! They will not be able to check out new books until the old ones are returned. If a student damages or loses a book it is their family’s responsibility to replace it or pay for a new one. I will start seeing classes the week of August 30th on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Check with your student’s teacher to see what day and time your student will be attending.
Communication plays a key role in providing students with the tools they need to succeed. During distance learning I created a Google Classroom in order to stay connected with students and their families, and I will continue to keep it up and running this school year. This is where I will be posting all things related to the library: Book Fair information, new books, reading challenges (you can earn prizes!), fun activities, etc. They can even search our library database and request books online! If you want to know what’s happening in the library this is the place to be! The link and code are located at the top of this page.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have. I am here to support students, teachers, AND families!
Book Fair October 11th – 15th
Mark West Families,
It’s time for another Book Fair: October 11th – 15th
Book Fairs serve as fundraisers for our school library and classrooms. The more books you buy, the more money you help us raise to buy new books for our school! You can stock up on books to read over the summer AND help us add new titles to our collection. Please visit the web page below to start exploring our Fair and to browse the hundreds of titles available from the Scholastic catalog. Thank you for your support and happy reading!
