Dear Lancer Families,

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. We'll be hosting a Parent Forum this Thursday, March 4th from 6-7pm to talk in more detail about the hybrid reopening process. Please access the Zoom link here. Please feel free to contact me at (805) 687-0761 or if you have any questions around these developments in the coming days or weeks.  


Save the Date for Another Meet the Author Book Club!

Please join the Santa Barbara Unified District teacher librarians in another Meet the Author event. This time we will welcome Roseanne Parry, author of A Wolf Called Wander and of A Whale of the Wild.Save the date: Monday, March 8, 2021 at 3:30 pm. Zoom link to follow!


March Madness:

Our library will be hosting a March Madness Book Tournament that is very similar to the March Madness college basketball tournament. We start with the Sweet 16 books and students fill out a bracket and predict which books will win each round all the way down to the winning book. Then they will vote on each round until we have the winner. There are prizes for the top three student winners. Students do not have to have read the books to participate. It is a fun contest that gets them thinking and talking about books!


If your student is interested in participating they need to join our March Madness Google Classroom with this link:
