We are excited about our theme for this year, “Lift Every Voice” and in the spirit of this belief, we created a digital video response that introduces each of our staff members to our Northside families. We have lifted our own voices so you can get to know who we are. You can view this on the front page of our school website or by clicking this link.
We are thrilled to once again partner with Flyleaf Books to bring in another great author, Alan Gratz next Thursday to meet our 5th graders. He will discuss his recent highly-acclaimed book, REFUGEE and share about his life as a writer. This will take place Thursday, September 7 at 9:00 in the Northside Library. Books can be purchased from Flyleaf and delivered on-site for him to sign the day of the event. For more information contact Flyleaf Books at (919) 942-7373
Don’t forget our library has lots to share! You can connect via social media at www.facebook.com/NESLibrary or find us on Twitter @Neslibrary….and while you’re there be sure to follow the Northside Elementary School social media accounts as well. These can be found on the bottom of our school webpage.
Finally, the library is seeking volunteers who would like to commit to a 2-3 hour block of time each week to help oversee library circulation and shelving of materials. If you are interested, please contact our librarian Kathryn Cole at Kcole@chccs.k12.nc.us . This will be a wonderful way you can support our school community.
International Dot Day is coming! Friday, September 15 we will celebrate this day of connection, creativity and collaboration that was started by author Peter Reynolds. We will encourage our students to think about the many ways they can make their mark on the world as we celebrate in the fun. To learn more about Dot Day and how it came to be, click here.
