The END of the Neverending Story!

This week we finished our Winter Book Club Session!

Thank you to my wonderful Fantasticans who brought this story to life.

There will be a storyboard display created by the students available for viewing on the Library Bulletin board shortly!

I'm looking forward to seeing you all again at the Spring Session!

Book Club Week 5

Hello my fellow Fantasticans!

We have reached the very exciting half-way point in our book!

I would like to welcome our two new members.  We are very lucky to finally have them join us!  

There will be no book club next week as we will be on February break. This will be a good time for everyone to catch up on our reading.  Please read through chapter 19.  If we are all caught up by the 26th then we will be right on track for our special activity on the last day!  

Have a wonderful break!

Thank you for a wonderful first meeting!  This week we will be reading the first 3 chapters.  Remember to write down interesting parts or anything you may want to talk about during our next meeting.  You are also welcome to draw an image that strikes you from the chapters.  If we collect enough of these we can use them to create an interesting project in our last meeting together!

I look forward to seeing you next Tuesday!

Inspiration for our Community

The last few weeks have been difficult for us all.  Some of us suffered great loss while the rest suffer from watching the pain of our close friends and loved ones.  I stumbled across this poem the other day.  Upon hearing it I was touched with a surge of emotion that was sadness and relief at the same time.  There is an interesting perspective to take in situations such as these, situations none of us should have to experience.  I share this poem with all of you now in hopes that you can find some relief in it as well.


"This being human is a guest house

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, 

whoviolently sweep your house

empty of it's furniture,

still treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out for some new delight.

The dark though, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing,

and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent 

as a guide from beyond."



I hope this poem finds you well.  Good times are coming for you all.
