BCIS students have really enjoyed our Author of the month studies this year. We have learned not only about the authors’ works, but something about their lives that we can inspire or teach us.
Several students have made great suggestions for our May author and have provided strong supporting reasons for their choices. We have decided to make May a “Choose your Own Author” month. All students will have the opportunity to do a short written presentation of the author of their choice. They will include a fact about the author’s life and a reason they are inspiring to others. These presentations will be made to their classmates and then displayed in the library.
It is very exciting for Mrs. Henwood to be retiring at the end of the school year although she will miss our students and staff very much. She is looking forward to helping Mrs. Stephanie Gillenwater, our new librarian, next year. Mrs. Gillenwater has worked hard for our library as the Book Fair Chairperson for many years and also as a substitute for Mrs. Henwood so she knows our collection well. She is dedicated our students and will make the library an even more wonderful place in the years to come.
