Congratulations to 3rd grader Hazel C., winner of a ridiculously huge candy bar for a truly amazing accomplishment. Last year, Hazel returned her library book on time EVERY WEEK – for the entire school year! I had planned to have a raffle for the candy bar among all students who returned books on time all year, but it turned out there was only one – no raffle required. This year, I’m planning to have a raffle for another fabulous reward. I’m hoping to have a few more contenders for the prize.
Returning library books on time is one way our kids can learn and demonstrate responsibility at school. Quite often, other students are waiting for library books to be returned so they can check them out. Families can help get library books back on time by keeping library books in a specific place at home so they are easy to find on library day.
Congratulations and thank you to Hazel!
