It was so great to see all the students come in this week. I really missed them over the summer. I have been busy getting all our new books ready for checking out. We were able to purchase more than 200 books this year. Thank you to everyone who helped support our library at the book fair. I am really excited to see the students back in the library starting next week and I can not wait to share all our new books with them.

Last week we celebrated kindness week at SPSL. The students help me in making a kindness confetti bulletin board. They wrote some notes with positive messages that can be shared with others. One note they took with them to give to someone. The other notes they stuck to the bulletin board and were told to take them as they like to give to others. Hopefully, our kindness will spread throughout our school and spill out into the world.
This week we celebrated International Dot Day. Dot Day is celebrated on September 15th and was inspired by the book, The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. It was started in 2009 by a 4th grade teacher, Terry Shay, in Traer, Iowa. It is a day to celebrate creativity, courage and collaboration. This week the 1st and 2nd graders made their own unique dot. They were put together to make one giant dot. It was great to see how talented and amazing each piece was, but together they really make a masterpiece. We also talked about other ways we could make a mark on someone. For example, many of them make a mark on me everyday when they come in and give me a hug.
Make your mark and see where it takes you!!
