Book Fair Time!

Our Fall Book Fair will be held Wednesday,  October 1st through Friday, Oct 10th.  Students are encouraged to bring their Book Fair money on the day they have Library during specials — this will be their main time to purchase books.  We will also be open during Parent-Teacher Conferences and during the Family Picnic Read & Feed on Oct 10th.  Of course, parents are welcome to come in and shop with their children any time!  We are also offering an ONLINE book fair this year, from Sept 22nd to Oct 12th.  Online orders will be sent to Burt after Fall Break and given to the students.

If you’d like to volunteer during the Book Fair, please send back the form sent home with your child on Friday, 9/26, or feel free to email me at


Accelerated Reader

Burt students are busy reading Accelerated Reader (AR) books and earning AR points!  Each student has a reading level range and point goal for this Nine Weeks, which ends right before Fall Break.  Several tools are available to help your child with AR.

  • AR Home Connect lets parents see their students’ progress toward their AR goals.
  • AR Book Finder can be used to see all the books that have AR Quizzes, whether they are in our library or not.
  • Burt Library Catalog shows the books we have in our library.  We are working on marking all our AR titles in the catalog, but it is a long process!
  • AR Quizzes can only be taken at school.

AR is part of our Reading Olympics.  Students will earn medals and prizes for meeting their goals!
