Elementary School South

Welcome Back Eagles!

I am so excited to kick off a brand new school year!  It will look a little different than in previous years, but  appropriate safety measures to ensure our Eagle readers are back in the library selecting books and enjoying reading once again!  The year will begin with instruction on how to access our electronic resources utilizing student Chromebooks.  

For our remote learners, we will hold Zoom meetings to share great stories, how to access electronic resources and much more.  Please watch for those times posted here!  You are welcome to join any of the meetings that fit your schedule.  Contact me for the meeting ID number and password.

Library Rules and Procedures

Be sure to check your student's backpack each Tuesday for communication from school to parents.

1. Students have a scheduled library visit with their Language Arts teacher.

2. Students in 4th and 5th will be allowed to check out up to three books because they will only be visiting every other week. Second and 3rd grade students may check out two books.

3. Books are due on the student's scheduled library day. If rechecking a book, students must have the book with them to recheck.

4. If a student is absent on his/her library day, books are rechecked for that student and will be due at their next scheduled library class.

5. While fines will not be charged at the elementary level this year, we must be diligent in returning books in a timely manner. Books may be renewed 3 times before it must be returned for the next reader on the list to check out.

Students returning all books each library visit will be permitted to check out the maximum number of books for his/her grade level.

6. Accidents do happen....But lost or damaged books must be paid for so we can replace that copy. Students may check out only one book until fees are paid. If the book is found after it has already been replaced, the book will become the student's property and no refund will be issued.

Reading Program

Barbers Hill Blue Eagle Reading Program

The Blue Eagle Program was a huge hit last year.  We had more participants read, enjoy and test on the 10 nominated titles so we hope that you will read along as the Blue Eagle Program continues this school year!

Mrs. Schultz and Ms. Johnson spent the spring of 2020 reading and evaluating new releases to include on the third annual Blue Eagle Nominee list.  We had a great time exploring new reads, but boy, it was a difficult task!  We narrowed it down to 10 incredible books that we believe our students will really enjoy reading!  Students will be challenged to read at least 3 of the 10 choices to be eligible to vote for their favorite title at the end of the year.  The librarians will share more with students in grades third through fifth and will also send a letter home which will include some annotation information about each novel so that families may become more familiar with the titles and authors.  
Please take a moment to look over this year's.

Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader will have a whole NEW look at Elementary South this year!

Due to social distancing restrictions, we will not have AR Incentive Parties this year.  Students will earn individual prizes. Students will conference with his/her reading teacher to establish an AR goal for each 6 weeks period and work to earn a much larger incentive.  Students will work to meet the goal with a 70% passing rate.  AR Prize charts will be posted here very soon!

Let the reading and testing begin...

AR testing will end on May 7, 2021, for this school year.  

Please continue to encourage your children to read and test!
