March 2018 Library News

March is finally here-and while it wasn’t the worst winter, I feel confident in speaking for the teaching staff in saying that we are thankful that it is drawing to a close.  Happy spring days are not far off!

This year our school will have its celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday on Friday March 2nd Mrs. Bardon’s 7th and 8th grade ELA students will be assisting me in going into our elementary classrooms to read Dr. Seuss books.  We will of course be wearing our Cat in the Hat hats, and will top off the celebration with delicious sugar cookies made by our very own OSSB Vocational Home Economics class!

Our Book Club just finished the book INKHEART by Cornelia Funke. This was a fun and thought provoking book, and I received some excellent feedback from students and teachers about it. The OSSB Book Club will shortly begin its last book of the school year this month.  We will be reading THE BADGER KNIGHT by Kathryn Erskine.  This is a historical fiction tale set in medieval England during the 14th century, during the border wars with Scotland, and is a tale of a boy with albinism, who rises to an unforeseen level of personal strength and bravery.  I’m hoping our Book Club students enjoy it as much as I did!

Soon spring will be entering into the picture. We will be reading about St. Patrick’s Day, the spring (Vernal) Equinox, baby animals, and Easter.  This year OSSB’s Spring Break will start for our students on March 29th, and students will start back to school on April 9th.  If you are planning on traveling during this break, don’t forget to pack a good book for the whole family to enjoy!

Due to our school year ending upon May 30th, next month’s Library News will cover the months of April and May. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me-I am happy to speak with you.  I may be reached at or phone 614-468-8857.
