In an effort to streamline library websites across Round Rock ISD, all library websites are making a move to the Google Sites platform. I developed a brand new, awesome website which will continue to serve as a landing place for our community to gain access to our online library catalog, research resources, MackinVIA eBooks, library schedule, details about library programs, general information, and professional development links for teachers & colleagues. The new library site is linked to our main school page under Library, and it’ll be the first place everyone goes to when looking for information! The Google Sites platform is also much more mobile and tablet friendly.
I am SO EXCITED to continue THIS website (englandlibrary.edublogs.org) as more of a News and Blog format! I’ll continue posting here regularly, adding photos, announcements, updates, and news about what’s happening in the library!
This summer, our NEWS website will serve as the place to go when entering our Weekly Giveaways!
I am also excited to maintain our News & Blog website for the rich history it contains! On this website, I’ve been chronicling our first seven years together at England, and I don’t intend to stop!
We have four more school days left! Use this time to check out our new website and take a look around!
BOOK FAIR IS HERE! Please sign up to volunteer at our England Library BOOK FAIR April 26-May 3!
Remember, you MUST be officially registered as a volunteer in Round Rock ISD before you can volunteer.
To say our students have been a little excited to meet kid-lit-tunes musician Emily Arrow is an understatement! We’ve been reading books, singing her songs, and watching her YouTube videos for months, and the day finally came for her to sing with us LIVE and IN PERSON from the Elsa England Cafeteria!!!!!!
Thanks again to our fabulous PTA for sponsoring this amazing experience for our community!
We were beyond thrilled to welcome Caldecott and Coretta Scott King honoree Christian Robinson to England Elementary, on the *very first* morning of his book tour for his eagerly anticipated debut as author-illustrator with his wordless picture book, Another.
Ms. Holcek’s second graders proudly introduced Mr. Robinson, sharing with the audience details about his books, helping welcome him to our school and kicking off his presentation.
Our kindergarten, first and second grade students (and teachers!) were enthralled with his presentation, and we all enjoyed “telling” the story of Another from our perspectives as he shared it with us during a special wordless group read-aloud.
Families at Elsa England, please check out this great event coming up in a few short weeks! Parents, please note the IMPORTANT RSVP DETAILS at the bottom of the flyer. RSVPs need to be made by parents to the teacher, on behalf of the student’s grandparents — by Thursday, March 7th!
Kindergarteners, 1st and 2nd graders are very excited to have the opportunity to hear from New York Times Bestselling, Award-Winning Author-Illustrator, Christian Robinson, as he speaks about his debut picture book, Another, at England Elementary on Monday, March 4th!
