2011 Faculty Pumpkin Contest Slideshow

Here is a sneak preview of the pumpkins that I’m sure your kiddos have been telling you about all week long. Our talented faculty and staff created these pumpkins in what has become an annual contest for bragging rights and the really cool trophy you’ll see in the pictures with last year’s winner, Mrs. Druck.

The students don’t know who created the pumpkins and they get three votes so they can split their votes or cast all three votes for one pumpkin if they want. You are getting to see before they do, just who created these fantastic pumpkin art pieces! The competition certainly increased this year and got very creative!!

Please keep the makers of the pumpkins secret–the names will be announced at tonight’s Fall Fling, along with the names of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners! The pumpkins will be on display in the library during tonight’s Fall Fling for closer viewing.

Scholastic Book Fair: 10/17 – 10/21/11

Come to Bucher’s Book Fair – where reading is out of this world!  This year, not only can your children purchase books for themselves or for their teacher’s classroom library, but you can also help build Bucher Library’s collection of books for all our kids to enjoy!  It’s easy to donate a book to the Bucher Library during the Book Fair – Just buy a book for the Library from Mrs. Canady’s “Librarian Picks” table or donate your extra change at the cash register when you check out.  Here are the details of the Fair:  
  • Students will get to Preview the books with their classes on Friday, Oct. 14th so they can make a “wish list” of what they’d like to buy.  Volunteers will help the younger children record their ‘wish list’.
  • Students will visit the Fair during their class’s normal library time during the week of Oct 17-21 and can purchase at that time.
  • Parents can purchase during the day or with their students during the Fall Fling on Thursday, Oct. 20 from 5:30-7:30pm.   This is also a great time to check out the “Teacher Wishlist” board to help your child’s teacher build his/her classroom library.  And don’t forget to help the Bucher Library grow by donating “Librarian Pick” books or donating your spare change at the check out!
