    Welcome back to another great school year! Cascadia Dragons love to read and all classes have had a chance to come in and check out books this week. Students in first grade can check out up to three books at a time and students in other grades can check out five. I'm happy to announce that I will be at Cascadia five days a week this year so students will have more consistent access to both the books and myself as a resource. This fall we will learn about how our library is organized and how to navigate and utilize our library database to support our reading and learning needs.   I am also happy to announce that Cascadia families now have access to SchoolPay so families can pay for lost books from home with a credit card. Some students have fines from other Seattle Public Schools and those can be taken care of  through SchoolPay as well. Simply log into "The Source" and click on SchoolPay on the left hand side. https://ps.seattleschools.org/public/    Additionally, I'm always looking for volunteers in the library. I would love help with checking in books each mornings and shelving books throughout the day. It is fun to help students locate books and check them out, too! There are also library tasks such as stamping books, adding bar codes and spine labels and repairing books. If you're interested, please contact me at msbodmer@seattleschools.org opens an email client application opens an email client application or sign up directly here https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080A48AAA922A0FB6-volunteer.   As always, please let me know if you have any questions at all. I look forward to collaborating with you this your on your student's education.  body.ae-reader{ max-width: 80% !important; } body.ae-reader .ifCalendarPicker, body.ae-reader #spanCalendarStatus, body.ae-reader #ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ctl15_ucCal_pnlContainer, .ae-calendar-warning{ display: none; } body.ae-reader .ae-calendar-warning{ display:block !important; font-size: 32px !important; font-weight: bold; } [class^="ae-icon-launcher"], [class*=" ae-icon-launcher"], [class*=" ae-icon-launcher"] [class*=" path"]{ margin: auto !important; } body.ae-reader #school-list, body.ae-reader #school-list-src{ display:none; } body.ae-reader table, body.ae-reader thead, body.ae-reader tbody, body.ae-reader tr, body.ae-reader th, body.ae-reader td, body.ae-reader .container.table-container, body.ae-reader .container.table-container > .row, body.ae-reader .container.table-container > .row > .column{ display: block !important; } transfer close carousel

    On Monday, March 5th, the Cascadia Flaming Falafels took third place in the semi-finals round of the Global Reading Challenge hosted by the Seattle public Library. Our team, a mix of 4th and 5th graders, competed against other elementary schools at the downtown branch, answering trivia questions about the ten books they read. We are proud of their hard work and sportsmanship! Other Library News: Classes will be introduced to the Caledecott and Newbery award winners for 2018. We will examine past winners and write a brief reflection on our favorite picture book. Please stop by and check one out!  Student Choice Voting: All 1st and 2nd grade classes will participate in voting for the Washington State Children's Choice Picture Book for 2018.

    Thank you to all who were able to attend the book fair last night hosted by Phinney Books! There was a great selection of books available and they have agreed to continue the book fair via phone or in person at the store until May 8th. Any purchases made between now and then will go towards Cascadia so if you missed us or just didn't find that book you were looking for, please do visit them or give them a call. We will still take donations for Emerson Elementary school as well if you're interested in helping them build their collection. Please contact Mrs. Bodmer directly for that. Thanks again for all your support and happy reading!   Phinney Books 7405 Greenwood Ave. N (206) 297-2665 http://www.phinneybooks.com
