Parent Involvement – You can help your child by…

Books and stories are the most important educational resources of our inquiry program as they support the love of reading and enrich students with much valuable information.
Therefore, we encourage your child to borrow books from the library every week and we appreciate your cooperation if you:
1. read the books with your child at home.
2. support the library system by returning the borrowed books every Tuesday. Children who do not return their books on Tuesday will not be allowed to borrow again until their books are returned.
3. write a note in your child's daily file if the book is torn or lost so that the book can be replaced.
4. send books from home to school with your child to share with the class during library time.
5. inform administration if the child is able to retell a story by himself so we can share and celebrate the accomplishment.
6. schedule a time to visit the preschool to read a story with your child's class during library time.
