THE FALCON FOREST

THE FALCON FOREST

This past summer of 2023 we transformed our Technology Lab in our Library to become the Vista Grande FALCON FOREST for our students. The vision was to overhaul this space and make it a location where students can enjoy lunch recess for those who would prefer an indoor location filled with legos, magnetiles, books, games, and more. This space is also used by our teachers and students throughout the school day.
The items in this space were graciously donated by our Vista Grande students and families! 
Thank you for making this vision turn into a reality!
 
OUR STUDENTS LOVE THIS NEW SPACE!!!

REPORT RESOURCES

 For additional resources for reports the Web Path Express on our Library Catalog may be helpful. WebPath Express is a part of the library catalog, and directs students to Internet resources that can help fill in some of the information that they may need for a report. In addition to our library, the Danville Library has many books, and you can request that a book from another branch be sent to be picked up by you here in Danville at no charge. You may currently request an eCard on the library web site if you don't have one. As a resident of California you may request a library card from any county library, and Dublin, for example has a very nice Children's section.

CALIFORNIA YOUNG READER PROGRAM

We will still be participating in the 2023 California Young Reader Medal Books. We will be starting with the three picture books for older readers this fall. Students hearing the three books will be voting for their favorite. Students in all grades will be voting for their favorite of the five picture books for elementary students in March. See below for information on the CYR chapter books for grades 4 & 5. These books may be read as a class or independently.

These are the California Young Reader chapter books for 2020-2021. If your teacher is not reading them to the class this year, try a library hold from the the Vista Grande or public library to check one of these books out!
