Dot Day

 If you walked through the library this week, you probably noticed how very dotty it looks.  Every year on September 15 (ish), teachers and librarians around the world celebrate International Dot Day by making time to encourage  students’ creativity.  "Dot Day" gets its name from the book, The Dot, written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds.  It is about a girl who is encouraged by her teacher to "make your mark and see where it takes you."  It demonstrates that when students are encouraged to explore their interests and gifts, their whole lives can be impacted.  Everyone on the Hillcrest campus celebrated by making their own mark.  

The Dot is available to share and read at home on Tumblebooks!

Other terrific "dot" books joined in our celebration.  Look for these fun titles on our library shelves!
