Selwyn Book Fair at Barnes & Noble

Summer break is a few days away and it is a wonderful time to stock up on books for Red Ribbon Reading!

Barnes & Noble at 4020 Sharon Road is hosting a book fair for Selwyn through this Saturday, May 29. Simply give them our Bookfair ID at checkout - 12609889. Visit BN.com/bookfairs to support us online by entering Bookfair ID 12609889.

Any book is included in the book fair, so it is a wonderful time for parents to purchase books for summer reading as well! A percentage of your Barnes & Noble purchases will benefit Selwyn!

Farewell to Ms. Council

After 42 years of educating students, Ms. Council is retiring this year. Second grade will not be the same at Selwyn as Mrs. Council has been teaching that grade level here since she joined our school in 2001 after previously teaching for 22 years at other schools in Charlotte and Georgia.
 
Heartfelt thanks to Ms. Council for the excellent instruction, support and love she has given her students during her 20 years at Selwyn. We will miss you but wish you the best as you begin your next chapter!
RRR Pledge Forms Deadline Extended
 
Please click HERE to fill out your child’s RED RIBBON READING pledge form information. Hard copies of the reading chart have been sent home in your child’s school folder. Additional copies can be found on the PTA website.
  • Set your child’s reading goals.
  • Ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and neighbors to pledge an amount of money per hour of summer practice or make a flat donation.
  • Find out if your employer will provide a corporate match.
  • Record your child’s goals and pledges online HERE.
These expected funds are used to set our PTA Operating budget for 2021-22. This year's RRR funds were able to bring our school and students such items as: 5th Grade Events, Kindergarten Ice Cream Social, 600 T-shirts, 37 Webcams for each classroom, 12 folding tables to socially distance the students so they could eat in the cafeteria, 600 popsicles for Red and Blue Day, one bike rack and RRR bookmarks.
 
Speaking of bookmarks, look for your child’s RRR Bookmarks being sent home this week to remind the students to READ, WRITE AND PRACTICE MATH over the summer.
 
Please remember, we are not collecting these funds now…this is only a pledge. We will collect these funds in September 2021.

Yearbook Deadline Extended to Friday

The deadline to order a Selwyn Yearbook has been extended to this Friday, May 28. Please click HERE to order. Yearbooks are $15 and will be delivered to school during the summer since we wanted to capture ALL events from this very different school year. Rising 6th graders will receive information on the summer pickup days at Selwyn through the Eagle Email.  

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YEARBOOKS HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE. You would not have purchased a yearbook earlier in the year or on the back to school form.  

If you have any questions, please contact Kim Lineberger.
