SIXTY MORE TO GO!
Thank you to all of you who have purchased a 2018 yearbook! We were on a mission to sell 100 more than what we had already sold since the beginning of the year to keep our funds in the black, We now have 60 more to reach our goal. They just came in and look AMAZING! If you have not purchased a yearbook yet, you still have time before they are distributed to students beginning with middle school on Monday, May 21 at the yearbook signing party. Only students who bought a yearbook will be given a ticket for the signing party in the courtyard after lunch. Elementary students will be given their yearbooks Tuesday or Wednesday morning between 8 and 9 AM. The price is $45, cash or check accepted. Checks should be made out to The Sanibel School. Please let me know name, grade and teacher’s homeroom. Questions, please contact, Dr. Kielborn-Jennings at <[email protected]>
LIBRARY RETURNS AND SUMMER READING
The end of the school year is on the horizon! All Sanibel School library items and textbooks will be due on or before May 16th. All items should be returned unless still needed for independent reading or exam preparation. They should be returned earlier if no longer needed. All these items as well as Chromebooks, library barcoded chargers, and Chromebook pouches 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. It should be useful in helping you and your child to gather all materials to be returned. 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!
