    Welcome Back! Just a quick reminder that library books go out for one week and can be renewed two times. 
    Please note your student’s library day.
    We are very excited about Peter Reynolds’ visit and have been reading The Dot.

    Nightly reading can be fun and rewarding for the whole family. Keep it simple and curl up on the couch or sit in a special chair, or get creative and pile up some pillows or make a tent out of blankets, whatever you decide. If you keep your library books in this special place you will always know they are safe and know where they are when it is time to return them. 
    Read aloud or take turns reading. Grownups don’t be afraid to use voices when reading; this makes the characters come to life.
    It's time for The Chelmsford Public Library’s annual Spooky Story Contest

    Children in K-12th grade are invited to write a scary story.

    * It must have a beginning, middle and an end. 

    * Our judges like the stories to be scary. It does not need illustrations.

    * Story must be neatly written or typed. 

    Stories are due on Saturday, October 13th at the Children's room at the Chelmsford Public Library.
    Include your name, phone number, grade and school.
    We will have a Spooky Story Celebration at the Main Library on Saturday, October 27 at 4:00 pm.  Winners will be announced. 
    I will be delivering any Spooky Stories that you turn to the South Row Library by Friday, Oct. 12. 
    Look for the 
    MONSTER BOX in the South Row Library!

    I have a great year planned for the students.  We will be reading some great authors in class, some old and some new. 
    Please let me know if you have any questions, or let me know if you would like to volunteer.


    Happy Reading,
    Mrs. Rankin

    Donate a Book to the South Row School Library! 


    As an act of kindness Ava Nobrega asked if she could do something special to get some new books for the South Row Library, luckily we have something in place.  

    A library gift book program has been set up to donate new books to the South Row School library! This is a great way to honor a favorite teacher or celebrate an event such as a student’s birthday. At the end of the school year, a book can be donated to celebrate a student’s moving on to middle school. 

     A wish list has been created on the amazon.com website. Use the following link to access amazon.com, so that the South Row PTO will earn a percentage back for every purchase you make:  https://smile.amazon.com login and choose South Row PTO as your charity.  

    Once at the amazon.com website, click on “Wish List” in the upper right hand corner. Then click on “Find a Wish List” and type in "rankinb@Chelmsford.k12.ma.us”. Then click on Librarian- B.Rankin. Books are available in a range of prices and can be shipped directly to the school. 

     In order to specify who you want the book dedicated to, just put the desired wording for the dedication in the “gift message” box, and a book plate will be placed in the book with that dedication when it is received. The book will then be cataloged and added to the library’s collection. 

     If you have any questions, please e-mail me at rankinb@chelmsford.k12.ma.us Thank you for your support!
