    Junie B. Jones Musical Field Trip a Success!

    Our first graders had the pleasure of seeing the Junie B. Jones Musical today in St. Charles.  There was singing, dancing, lots of laughs, and Junie B. herself!  Thank you to all of the parents and teachers who took the time out of their day to share in a fun-filled production of a beloved children’s book series!  We appreciate our Armstrong PTA (Parent Teacher Association) for supplying the funds for the busses!

    The Armstrong Library is having trouble keeping Junie B. Jones books in stock after the show!  Here are some pictures of the fun!  Follow us on Twitter @ArmLibrary54 for more fun and news!

    Welcome to Armstrong’s Library!

    Welcome to the Armstrong Library!  Students will be able to start checking out books on August 28th.  We have lots of new and exciting titles for all grade levels!  Below are some of our policies.

    Book Checkout

    Each week students get to check out a book from our library.  Students in Kindergarten are allowed to check out one book each week.  Students in first and second grade will be able to choose one book each week also, but will then be able to check out two books beginning in January.  Students in third through sixth grade are allowed to check out two books each week.  Books are due back to the library one week after being checked out.  Students may renew books if they need more time to read them!

    Overdue Policy

    We DO NOT charge fines for overdue books. We DO expect students to return books and materials on time. There is a charge for replacement costs for lost or damaged books.

    Replacement/Repair Costs for Materials Lost or Damaged

    Community Consolidated School District 54 purchases thousands of dollars of instructional materials each year for student use. It is the user’s responsibility to maintain these materials.  Therefore, if an item has been lost or damaged/destroyed, an appropriate cost or repair charge will be determined by the principal and billed to the responsible Parent/ Guardian.

    Third and fourth graders will be playing Country Bingo!  Students will use books about countries and text features to locate information to get Bingo!

    Fifth and Sixth graders will be learning about how authors use mood to make the reader feel different emotions while reading.

    Happy Spring Break!

    Library Update for the Week of March 13th

    This week first and second graders will be reading the story, The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate The Wash.  While reading, we will be paying attention to how the characters react to the problems in the story.  We will also look at how the author uses the pictures to set the mood of the story.  Students will be creating their own reactions to the book and comparing how close they were to what actually happened in the story.

    Third and fourth graders will be reading a Chinese Fable called A Fox and His Skin and a Greek Fable called The Wolf and the Goat.  After reading these stories, students will be comparing the characters, events, topics, and themes in these stories.

    Fifth and Sixth graders will be learning about how authors use mood and tone to make the reader feel different emotions while reading.  This week, we will be focusing more on tone in stories.  This can help us understand the author’s feelings as we read.
