About the Library

  • Greetings Puffins!

    Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fun and restful summer, and that you all spent at least a little time reading. School begins on Wednesday, August 17th, and our specials class schedule starts right away, so some classes will have library on the very first day of school!

    Some students are still missing books from last year. If you've found them over the summer, it's never too late to return them. I won't be mad - in fact it will make me very happy! We have an outside drop box by the school's front doors, or you can drop them in the library any time! Even if you are coming from Anne Wien or another school, and you still have their books, you can return them to Pearl Creek, and I will make sure they get back to their home library.

    For the first half of the school year, my learning focus will be on helping all students independently navigate the library and utilize the library catalog. That means you will be finding books on your own! My hope is that by the time they leave Pearl Creek at the end of fifth grade, all students will be proficient in looking up the books they want in the catalog, and then finding them on the shelf. This is an important skill that will help them throughout their school years and beyond.

    All students will be able to check out books the first day of library. I'm eager to get books into hundreds of little hands! My biggest hope for all students who come through my doors is that I will be able to help connect them with books they will love, and that they will come to see reading as a pleasure.

    I can't wait to see you!


    Happy Reading
