It’s World Poetry Day!

Today, March 21 is the UN World Poetry Day! The PYP will be celebrating with a “Poem in Your Pocket” so MYP/DP students are encouraged to stop a little person in the hallway or playground and have them read you a poem (or better still- have a poem in your pocket ready to share with them as well!).

The library will have classic poetry books available on the back tables for those who would like to indulge in some of the classics- Wordsworth or Thomas, Plath or Dickinson, Longfellow or Poe, Rumi or Whitman, Teasdale or Blake. Expand your horizons!

Hope to see you in the library-

Korean Student Library Helpers Needed

The library is looking for MYP Korean students who are interested in updating the Korean books in the library catalog. You can volunteer at lunch or afterschool any day you choose.

This initiative will qualify for C&S- Service.

Please see Mrs. Rinker in the library if you are interested.

Speed Read & Cake Eat!

Dear Kid-Lit Enthusiasts!

Do you have a passion for high-quality children’s picture books?

Do you have a passion for cake?

I will be hosting a super quick, 15-minute- speed-read-and-cake-eat during morning break (10:20-10:35) on Thursday March 23 in the Strategy Room.

The purpose is to choose our school’s nominations for the 2018 Panda Awards in China (each school can submit a few titles to be considered for the awards next year). Contact Michelle for more info-

Hope to see you there!
