We are off to a great year in the library. Classes have been visiting our wonderful library space and we are learning/revisiting library routines and beginning to checkout to students in 1st-8th grade. Kindergarten students will begin checking out later this fall.
I am excited to share that our first author visit of the year will occur this month. In partnership with the Book Stall in Winnetka, award-winning author Matt Tavares will visit the St. Francis campus on September 26th. He will be presenting to our 1st-3rd grade classes, as well as doing a drawing demonstration. Matt is on tour for his new book, Dasher, which explores the legend of Santa Claus and his infamous reindeers. In addition to his newest book, Mr. Tavares is known for his stunning baseball biographies featuring such famous players as Ted Williams and Babe Ruth. I, along with Miss Taubansee, have been exposing students to his many works in library and art class. More information about the author can be found on his website.
Copies of Dasher can be purchased by families by completing the Matt Tavares SFX Order Form and returning it, along with payment, to the SFX office no later than Monday, September 23. All purchased copies will be autographed by the author.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
