Welcome back girls, boys, and parents! We’ve missed you! Summer went by very quickly and we are looking forward to starting a new exciting year of learning. Can’t wait to hear what you’ve been reading this summer! Hope you’ll ask me what I’ve been reading:0)
Love – Mrs. Jacobus
Keep reading over the summer at the most amazing public library in the country! I tell the students all the time that Mrs. Jacobus has lived in three different states and by far the Fayetteville Public Library is THE BEST I’ve been a member of! If you haven’t been, you should! The space is amazing. The collections are strong. And the staff would do anything to help you find a book or source.

We’ve been so busy at the library, trying out new things! Love our kids to the moon and back!
The Little Red Pen, written by sisters Susan Stevens Crummel and Janet Stevens, was the winning Arkansas Diamond Book this year at Leverett Elementary!
A very close 2nd place was Wiener Wolf, by Jeff Crosby.
Arkansas Diamond Ballot
All students in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade get to vote on their favorite Arkansas Diamond Book this week! We’ve been preparing for this all year and the week to vote is finally here. Our votes will go with all the other students’ votes from across the state and in May the state winner will be announced.
So happy for our 5th grade Vellios students. They were able to attend a visiting author visit today at the public library. SOOOO proud of Chloe, who earned a “$20 Bookmark” for knowing about the Great Depression! 2 others earned a “bookmark” for singing! What a wonderful presenter our 3-5th grades enjoyed today. 3rd and 4th saw him through LiveStream while he was at McNair in person.
