Buckingham Reading Club

On October 9 we began a new year of Reading Club.  Students were so excited over their dedicated books from last year and are keen to dedicate another.  So, be sure to Read, Read, Read each night and check off your form.  The actual 50th Night of Reading is November 27.  However, if you miss a night or two, that’s okay.  The next form won’t be available until December 4.

If you lose your form you can print another – check under the “Reading Club” page.

Happy Reading,
Ms Carson

Library Books All Due Back This Week

Wow – it’s that time of year already!! Please bring back your library books this week so that we can complete the year-end clean up. We also need to pack up many of the books because of the painting work in the library this month.

If everyone in a class brings their books back on their library day, there will be a prize for that class.

Thank you,
Ms Carson
