Kindergarten students from BES had a field trip to the library where Mrs. Simpson introduced them to fun stories, library cards, and a tour. They presented Mrs. Simpson with these lovely thank you cards. (Now on display.)
Two summer reading programs in one! The
Merrick Public Library and the Brookfield Elementary School are teaming up for
a Summer Reading Challenge. The same reading chart being sent home with BES
students will be available at the library starting June 22, the last day of
school, and will be available to all patrons. The Summer Reading Challenge is
not just for the elementary students – we encourage pre-teens, teens,
adults…everyone to join the fun! When
you have completed your chart, get it stamped at the library and receive a
special prize! If you are a BES student, you can also turn the chart in at
Student participants will also have the
opportunity to attend a Paw Sox game free.
Ask the library staff for details.
Summer is a fabulous time to read--ask
us for recommendations!
