Welcome to Anne Watson Elementary Library.
Where imagination and adventures begin!
Summer Reading Challenge
Did you know that students who do not read over the summer often fall below grade level when they return to school? It’s called the “Summer Slide,” & there are very scary statistics about it! But never fear, because a “Reading Superhero” Program is here! Anne Watson is so excited to partner with Scholastic on a SUMMER READING CHALLENGE! Students can sign into a unique account created just for them at www.scholastic.com/summer. Each student has a username & password they can use all summer to log the number of minutes they have read. As they log their minutes, students can unlock stories from some of their favorite authors, & earn digital rewards! Students who do not have internet access can log minutes on a paper reading log we have provided. Our school is competing to read the most minutes in Arkansas…if we win, we will be mentioned in the Scholastic Book of World Records! The students who read the most will receive special prizes when school starts back, & all students who participate this summer will be entered into a drawing for prizes as well! If you missed our letters that were sent home, you can access them here! So be your child’s hero, & keep them from going down the “Summer Slide!” Our challenge begins on May 9th- we hope you will join us!
Students in grades 1-6 are allowed to check out a maximum of two books for a two week period. Upon the return of one or both of these books, they may check out another.
Students in Kindergarten may check out one book for a maximum of two weeks. Upon the return of this book, they may check out another book.
Anne Watson Elementary Library participates in three different fundraising programs each year as well as hosting two Scholastic Book Fairs each year.
The Box Tops for Education Program allows schools to collect box tops and redeem them for ten cents each.
Tyson Foods Project A+ allows schools to redeem labels from Tyson Products showing the pictured logo for twenty-three cents apiece.
Campbell’s Labels for Education Program allows schools to redeem labels from Campbell’s products for items/products from their educational catalog. Please note that the rules for the submission for Campbell’s labels have changed!! They no longer accept the entire front label from soup cans, etc. They now ONLY accept the UPC or barcode area of the label. Some cans have a picture of the Campbell’s kid beside this barcode while others have the barcode in yellow to help distinguish it. Others simply have the barcode by itself. Please be sure the barcode area of the label is intact when sending your Campbell’s soup labels to the school as that is the portion I send in to the company!
