Library Week  National Library Week is this week from April 14-20. Libraries are places for opportunity, education, self-help and lifelong learning. It is the dedication of our librarians that keeps our libraries vibrant and indispensable – and that is truly worth celebrating.

Summitt is proud to honor and recognize the efforts of our librarian, Ms. Richey. She is a dedicated professional and helps create active learning centers, assist students and staff members in the use of on-line databases, encyclopedias, primary sources and print materials. Most importantly, she prepares students for success in college. We all benefit from the resources and services provided by her!

The celebration provides an opportunity for staff, parents and the community to show their appreciation to Ms. Richey for her tremendous impact that she has had in helping our students achieve school success and plan for a career. Although we should express our heartfelt appreciation throughout the year, we encourage you to set aside some extra time during this special week to honor Ms. Richey for the outstanding job that she does for our students and families.  
Here are a few simple ways you can show your appreciation:
· Present her with heartfelt thank you cards.
· Have students develop poetry, special artwork or a short skit.

CATCH Family Night  Summitt's CATCH Family Fun Night will be held on Wednesday, May 21 from 6-8 p.m. We will be teaming up with the Book Fair in the library for an evening of fun! We have some great health and wellness vendors from our community that will be participating. We will also have many fun family activities such as an obstacle course, Zumba dances, and healthy food samples! If you know of any health or wellness vendors in Austin that would like to participate, please let me know and I would be happy to add them to our event! Email me at michelle.comsudi@austinisd.org.

STAAR Tests Next Week  On Tuesday, April 1 and Wednesday, April 2 (and probably on April 3-4), we will have STAAR testing. Due to testing being conducted in various rooms in the main building, the 4th/5th grade wing, some of the portables and in the library, we will have limited space for parents wishing to eat lunch with students on those testing days. Please remember and also remind your students that the school will be in "Quite Zone Mode" all day on testing days.
