       Library news

Box Tops - In the 1st Nine Weeks, we collected well over 2,000 BOX TOPS BUT sadly many had expired in June/July of 2017… watch those expiration dates and send non-expired, clipped box tops to school when you can.  Next collection will be Wednesday, December 13th… Remember each box top is worth $.10 and     10 = a dollar for the library to purchase books or items for the teachers! Thanks for supporting your EES library.                  

REMEMBER another Opportunity! - Along with box tops, we are also collecting BEST CHOICE labels for cash! Our local Gene’s store carries the Best Choice brand and those labels can be redeemed for $.03 each in the Best Choice Save-a-Label program.

Overdue/Lost?/Damaged Books - Just a friendly reminder that you are responsible for lost or damaged books that are checked out to your child. Typically, we give a week or two for your child to return an overdue book, and then it is declared lost. If your child damaged a book due to water damage, dog chewing it up or a younger sibling marking or coloring in the book, you are responsible for paying for the book per the student handbook. Students are given weekly reminders and notes are often sent home. If we get no response, then the library will send a letter via e-mail and/or snail mail. Typically, it will show up on your child’s IC with the amount for replacement cost(s). Please contact the library if you have questions or concerns about a lost or damaged book.           

Please notify the office if:

Your child’s after school plans get changed. (please notify us by 2:00 PM)

If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time, please remember to let us know who will be responsible for your children. We’ll need contact names and numbers.

Emergency contacts ~ Please verify who you have listed as emergency contacts. In a real life emergency, we will need to verify who is able to pick up your child/children.
