Amanda Taylor Upper Elementary


Upper Elementary

Time in the library is busy in the upper elementary grades.  Students learn more about books, types of books and reasons to read the various literary genres.  In addition a significant amount of time is spent working on taking notes, both for research and during a lecture as well as discussing the research process.  The research process includes the Big9, plagiarism, types of sources, what a quality source is as well as digital citizenship. Students are welcome in the library at any time to find a book to check out to read for pleasure or for an assignment.



TAS has been very fortunate this summer, in that I was able to purchase so many amazing titles for our library! If you are a biography buff the collection of Who was/is...books has greatly expanded!! Want to know What is ... or Where is... come check it out!

Thank you

The 2018 Book Fair was a HUGE success.  The Anthony School had the results from the book fair in recent memory! We sold over $17,000 worth of books during the fair and earned over $8,800 in credit to buy books from Scholastic.  The success of the fair depends on all of the parent volunteers.  I can’t thank everyone who worked enough, especially those who volunteered during the GrandGuest mornings.  The bulk of the money every year is earned in those three mornings.  I would like to specifically thank Ashley Beazely who worked tirelessly to ensure the fair was staffed.  Thank you again and I hope you all you students are ready to check out some amazing new titles soon!
