We invite our community to come to The Sanibel School see what our students are doing to develop their leadership skills.

LIBRARY RETURNS AND SUMMER READING
The end of the school year is on the horizon! All Sanibel School library items and textbooks WERE due on May 16th. All items should be returned unless still needed for exam preparation. All these items as well as Chromebooks, library barcoded chargers, and Chromebook sleeves must also be returned to clear your student's Media Center account for participation in end of the year activities such as the talent show and promotion ceremonies. Please refer to the emailed list of all items checked out to your student. Though we'd much rather have the books to share with other students, you can make a check out to The Sanibel School if any items are damaged, not in usable condition or cannot be found. If a lost item is paid for, but later found and returned, we'll gladly issue a reimbursement check! You may call or e-mail Ms. Payne at school ([email protected], 239-472-1617) if you have a concern about your book(s). She is always happy to help search or investigate in cases of missing items!
Please do urge your kids to keep reading throughout the summer. EBooks are available in Overdrive, accessible through Launchpad/Apps Launcher or on the home tab of our school library website www.Destiny.leeschools.net! Sunshine State Young Reader Award titles for the coming year can be accessed now! Summer reading programs will also be a blast at the Sanibel Public Library and at the Captiva Memorial and Lakes Regional libraries. Keep Reading, Sanibel!
