Dear South Families,

School has changed its face quite abruptly but I am here to help! While we are all working together to make the most of this, please use the library website to help you with book selection and research needs. I have been working closely with the Lynbrook Public Library to make even more online resources available to you. Use the links on the left side navigation bar to get started and feel free to email me with any questions you might have or just to say hello.  

Most importantly, please stay safe and be well!  

Best regards,

Mrs. Wasielesky

 

A note from our district:

 

The Lynbrook ELA department maintains a deep commitment to fostering a love of reading in our students and providing choice to students is a proven and research-based method for accomplishing this.  Book titles that are available to students in classrooms and from the school library are recognized by literacy experts as academically and developmentally supportive, and include national winners of awards such as the Newbery, Printz, Coretta Scott King, and Alex prizes, promoted by library organizations such as the YALSA and ALA, and align with the principles of the NCTE and NYS NGLS. These titles are acknowledged for their high student interest, their literary merit, and for their ability to develop critical thinking.

 

Students’ book choices often reflect their own interests, and sometimes students choose books that contain mature themes and language, such as themes of coming-of-age (including sexuality), loss, and peer pressure.  Parents are encouraged to discuss book choices with their children, as well to discuss the reading of these books. With parents as partners in a child’s reading education, the Lynbrook ELA department hopes to make lifelong literacy a priority in every child’s education.
