We are going to pretend that we can text Auggie some encouragement before he starts his first year of public school! Swing on by the library to pick up your cell phone template, write your encouraging words and thoughts, and I will post it on the Wonder bulletin board outside the library!

This year Round Rock ISD is having a “One Book, One Community” event centered on the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. The main character is a 5th grader named August. All year, we will pretend that Auggie is at school with us! Each month of the school year, we will have an activity related to the book.
This month, we will have a contest! Auggie’s teacher, Mr. Browne, posts a rule to live by every month. In the book, the September rule is this:
“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” ~Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.
Comment below, and tell me one way you can “Choose Kind” this year. I will choose one exceptional entry and the winner will receive a copy of Wonder to keep!

I love school supplies! There’s nothing like a new batch of freshly sharpened pencils, clean and unused notebooks, pristine folders and binders!
There’s an energy to the air when the school year is new. It’s a new chance, a clean slate, full of opportunity.
Here’s to a great 2013-2014 school year!
