We are very excited about our upcoming book fair. We will start previewing at the end of next week and start selling on the week of October 23rd-27th. Thursday October 26th, we will be open late until 7PM for the Fall Fest. Hope to see you all there!
Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade were able to meet author Laura Hudgens on Friday, October 6th. She talked with students about the importance of reading and how she wrote and was able to get her book published. She is also currently working on her second book.
Students and staff were very excited to welcome back Trixie to the library. Students love reading to Trixie! Trixie is part of an amazing organization called Faithful Paws out of Houston, Texas. We are very lucky to have our students experience this program at Alton Elementary.
We have started with a new crop of 20 books for the 2017-2018 Bluebonnet Award. Remember you need to read 5 books to qualify to vote for your favorite in January 2018. We are planning something new and special this year if you qualify to vote. If you read 5 books you will also get to attend our Bluebonnet Breakfast in February!

We are busy getting things ready for you in the library at Alton Elementary. You have a new librarian, Mrs. Polk that will be on our campus along with Mrs. Vanek. You will still come to the library with your teacher. We are excited about all the possibilities of things we can do this year in the library.
We can't wait to see you being a Reading Hero!

Alton Elementary just got new hardback books for their library... All these new books to choose from makes it a very hard decision to choose which book to read.
March Madness has been going on at Alton Elementary School... Check out our boards to see the books in the lead. Each week, the students are voting on the best books at AES until we get down to one book. Also, Trixie has still been coming once a week to read with our students. We love our visits from Trixie.
