I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our library. My name is Jennie Shay and I am the library Aide at J.G. Johnson.
We operate an open library concept, where at the teacher's discretion, he or she may send a student to the library at anytime during the day. Our hours are from 8:300AM to 2:00PM with lunch from 11:30 to Noon. All students are able to check one book out for one week. They may also renew a book if it is needed longer. Students are responsible for the books they check out. For lost or damaged books, a notice will be sent home with a fee charged. All fines and fees must be paid in cash or a money order.
There is a wide range and variety of books that are available to the students. At J.G. we also provide the Accelerated Reading Program (AR). This is a computerized testing program designed to test a student's comprehension of books read and to supervise their reading development. A student will earn points for each book tested ranging from 0.5 points and up. The points will accumulate from year to year.
Our school is pleased to bring to you and your children our Scholastic Book Fair that we hold twice a year. It is an enjoyable and exciting time to buy carefully selected quality books and products at affordable prices. Plus, proceeds from this event will benefit our school and library.
We also participate in Box Tops for Education and Campbell's Labels for Education. Any and all labels would be greatly appreciated. Just send them along with your child to school. I thank you in advance for your involvement.
I am excited to see each and every one of your children in the library. I am eager to share my love of books with them and to promote a lifelong love of reading. Just remember, "Let the book bug bite".
