December/January Newsletter

As winter approaches and it gets colder outside, things are heating up in the library!

First, a big thank you to all Westview families for helping to support our library during the fall book fair. We sold 700 books which equates to 125,971 reading minutes! The money raised helps us to purchase more books for the library and our students. We will have another book fair during parent teacher conferences in February.

Battle of the Books has started and we’ve got over 30 4th and 5th graders reading away!  BOB (Battle of the Books) is an after school book club where students read and discuss from a list of 10 books and then answer questions based on the books in a “quiz show” format.  We will have our school “battle” in April and our winning team will compete against of Adams 12 teams at the district battle at the end of April 2019.

In honor of Computer Science Education Week (December 3rd-9th) all students K-5 will participate in an hour of code. In Colorado alone, there are over 16,000 open computing jobs and not enough graduates to fill these positions.  All students deserve the opportunity to learn about computer science, how to create and develop apps, and how the internet works.

We will also be hosting our first Family Code Night on December 3rd in the library where students and their families can learn to code together.
