THE SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR WILL BE HELD FEBRUARY 2-5, 2015

 

Bookfair 013

The Library will be open during normal hours

and during Parent-Teacher Conferences.

Dear Families:

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits.  It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are.  Here’s what you can do to help children develop strong reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Set the example. Let children see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • make time for your children to read every day.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is reading event that brings to school the books kids want to read.  It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Our book fair will be held February 2-5, 2015. Your can purchase books during school hours and during Parent-Teachers Conferences to make it convenient for parents or grandparents to stop in and take a look at the books offered.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our school.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Nielsen

 

RECYCLE YOUR INK CARTRIDGES TO HELP THE LIBRARY BUY NEW BOOKS

Recycle 2015 002

Recycle Your Ink Cartridges

We are accepting used ink cartridges at the Shelby-Rising City Public Schools for recycling.  The cartridges are sent to a cartridges recycling center and we are reimbursed for them.  The money is used to buy new books for our library/schools.  So if your have any used cartridges you’d like us to recycle, please bring them to the Shelby Community Library, or the Shelby or Rising City Schools.  Place them in a sandwich bag and put it in our collection box.  We will take care of them for you! NO large laser cartridges are accepted with this program.  Most Dell, Hp, Lexnark and Cannon ARE accepted with this program.  We can recycle Epson cartidges for you but are not paid for them.

In addition to raising money for our library/schools, recycling inkjet cartrideges has a positive impact on the envirnment.  Consider the following: Nearly 1 million inkjets are thrown into our landfills every day.  Less than 5% of the cartridges produced are recycled.  It takes 1000 years for the plastic to decompose. Thanks for considering recycling!
