Hi! My name is Melvil Dewey!

This week, another librarian sent out a link to this video that is an excellent way to learn about Melvil Dewey and the Dewey Decimal System.  4th graders definitely learn about Dewey but I think 3rd and even 2nd grade would also learn from this as well.  Watch and find out for yourself!
Be careful - this song might get stuck in your head!!

Thank you, Sarah!

Who is Sarah and why are we thanking her?  She is Sarah Hale and not only did she write the poem "Mary Had a Little Lamb", she also wrote to politicians for years then five different presidents(!) until she finally convinced Abraham Lincoln to make Thanksgiving a national holiday.

Thank you, Sarah, for being an example of perseverance... and for the turkey and the pumpkin pie!


We will only see this date once but every year on November 11, we observe Veterans' Day and take a moment to remember veterans in the past and thank our veterans today.

Thanks to Mrs. Cupples from Tipps Elementary for the image with the hotspots and to Ms. Robison from Anderson Elementary for gathering such great links!
Thank a Veteran today!
