    Cascadia Library


    Welcome to Cascadia’s Library where we love to learn and read!! Our mission is to foster a love of reading while also supporting our students as they develop information literacy skills. Please see below for a few Fall FAQs.



    Scholastic Book Fair


    The Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon! It will be in Cascadia's library on Monday, Nov. 20th, and Tuesday, Nov. 21st, during family/teacher conferences. Please feel free to drop off your student(s) in the library while you attend your conference and swing by and buy a book on your way out. All purchases at the book fair will contribute to the library budget, and we would love your support! We are also in need of volunteers to run the cash registers and supervise the students. If you are interested and willing to volunteer, please see the signupgenius below.

    Global Reading Challenge

    Global Reading Challenge for 4th and 5th graders will begin after Thanksgiving break. The Seattle Public Library hosts this optional program for all Seattle Public School students in 4th and 5th grades. Students who choose to participate will be placed into teams of six or seven and challenged to read ten books between them. We will meet in the library once a week for lunch and lunch recess to discuss the books. On February 6th, we will hold a Cascadia Global Reading Challenge where our teams will compete against each other, testing their knowledge of the books. The winning team will advance to the semi-final round and compete against other elementary schools in Seattle. Students will be introduced to the program and the books this week and next. If they choose to participate, students need to turn in permission slips to their teacher or directly to the library by November, 17th. No late permission slips will be accepted. I can't wait to meet with this year's teams and get reading! Go Dragons!
