A Surprise in a Book from a Generous Donor! Thank you!

posted Sep 20, 2017, 10:14 AM by Bridget Krieger

At the end of last school year, Smyth Rd. received many donations of books from families here and the greater Manchester Community. One special donor had a surprise in store for us! The anonymous donor put cards inside the books they donated saying to see Mrs. Briggs with the card when found. 

For one lucky student, who took a book and proceeded to read it this summer, she found the card inside! After returning it to Mrs. Briggs, Reem M., received a wonderful gift card to Barnes and Nobles! In addition, this generous donor also dropped off a gift card for our library to purchase some new books for students! 

Therefore, we would love to give a big thank you to this generous donor! Thank you for investing in our students, our school, and believing in the importance of reading!

It was so wonderful seeing new and old faces yesterday! We have some new bus drivers! Check out this great bus created by 4th grade students last year in the library Maker Space. Elizabeth Kelly and Katrina Zioze spent a lot of time adding realistic features like a stop sign which moves, rear view mirror, walkie talkie, and steering wheel!

posted Jun 15, 2017, 8:12 AM by Bridget Krieger

All students went home on the last day of school with a Booked for Summer Passport.  Students can complete half of the passport on their own by completing the reading goals and filling in their own stamp. The other half challenges students to visit destinations throughout Manchester that foster reading and learning. These locations can be visited during normal business hours or during a fun event. Check out the calendar on the Booked for Summer website to see tons of activities going on this summer. There are many awesome free opportunities. The calendar will be updated all summer long! Students will return their passport in September to receive raffle tickets and do a follow up lesson with their new teacher.
