Celebration Book Club!

Highcroft has a Celebration Book Program where you can leave your child's legacy by donating money to cover a book to be placed in the media center. This is a great opportunity to commemorate your child's school experience at Highcroft while also sharing the gift of reading with other students. If you are interested in participating, please go to the PTA website, my school website, or by contacting me at school...9194603527 or
Thank you for your support and interest in promoting reading!

Kindergartener's First Week in the Media Center!

This week Tracks 1, 2, and 3 kindergarteners visited the school library for the very first time. All were very respectful, listened attentively and had a great time. We enjoyed the book written by Amy Hest titled, Off to School, Baby Duck! We learned about the rules and policies of the library and how to take care of books. We viewed a few select books that were ruined because of specific accidents such as water bottle spills, eating while looking at your book, leaving books out for pets and babies to ruin, turning the pages roughly, as well as writing in books. Each student was allowed to select a book from the tables to check out. This will allow each class to learn our procedures. Each book was placed in a book bag with a bookmark and a letter to parents. (I am hopeful each family read the letter:) Students were asked to bring back their book so they can select another book. I can't wait to see the kinders again!
