Be A Library Star!
Amelia Elementary and the Amelia Public Library are working together to encourage students to visit the library on a regular basis. We have started a collaborative program in which students log hours spent at the library for checking out books, doing homework or reading. The program will run from November 1 through April 2012. The student that logs the most hours per grade will receive a prize at the end of the school year. We encourage you to take your child to the library on a regular basis to participate in this program. Forms are available at the Amelia Library, just ask! The forms are kept at the library during the program.
 
Box Tops Winners 2013
The February class winner was Mrs. Wells’ B class – they earned a Popsicle party! Be sure to keep clipping your Box Tops! We were able to bring COSi on Wheels to AE this year using the money we earned from Box Tops. Let’s keep it going for next year as well!
