WELCOME FAMILIES TO THE BOWMAN CREEK ELEMENTARY LIBRARY
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! We are looking forward to another great year of reading and learning in the library. The Bowman Creek Library houses thousands of books, reference materials and a wonderful computer lab. Our mission is to ensure that all students are effective users of ideas and information. With the aid of our resources and the goal of integrating technology, we hope to give all students the ability to be creative, life-long learners.

Weekly Library Visits
If your child is in grades K-2, they will visit the library one time a week (see schedule on the reverse side). During the scheduled library time, students will enjoy literature, learn the many skills needed to locate materials in a library and have the opportunity to practice digital citizenship and Computer Science skills. Each student may check out books during their library time. Students in grades 3-5 will come to the library on a 6 day rotational schedule.
Check Out Procedures
Students check out two books each week and both books are due on their scheduled library day. Students must have all books returned before being allowed to check out additional books so please help remind your students to bring back their book each week.
To ensure a positive learning environment for all, students are expected to be STARRS: Students That Are Respectful, Responsible and Safe. Students who display these behaviors will be rewarded with positive reinforcement as well as extra computer time.
We encourage all students to choose appropriate behavior. However, when a student
chooses not to cooperate with these rules, the following consequences are implemented:
- A reminder to follow library rules will be given.
- Turn Around. Students will be asked to think about how their behavior has interrupted their learning and those around them. They will complete a Turn Around form, discuss it with me then return to their learning. These forms will be sent home.
We look forward to a great year. Please contact me or our paraeducator, Mrs.Wate, with any questions or concerns.
