African American History Mural

Our 5th grade Artists here at Libby collaborated on the planning and construction of a mural that tries to both celebrate African American history while also recognizing the fight for equality in America is on going. The mural is on display in the Atkin's Auditorium and was unveiled at the school's Black History Month Assembly at the end of February. Stop and admire our artwork when you get the chance!

Going To The Dogs

Libby is going to the Dogs (And Cats)!!

No fewer than three separate programs are putting pets in the spotlight. Mr. Hill's middle school classes created animal water color paintings which will be auctioned off this month, with all proceeds going to PAWS animal shelter.

The service learning class supported the effort with research into aspects of pet ownership and animal cruelty, including dog fighting. After researching the issues, they created informational posters which hang around the school.

The Student Council is collecting items for the Animal Welfare League, including pet toys, leashes, rags, blankets and cleaning supplies.

We salute our students for serving the pet community, particularly one that cannot speak for itself.

Author Joe Brown Visits Libby!
Libby Loves Joe! Joe Brown, author of the Marceau children's series, visited the second grade February 19 for a reading of his latest book, Water For All. Brown stressed the importance of imagination in writing, and students created a fantasy story on the spot. Each child and parent received a personal copy of Water for All, and an exciting shared experience.


Joe Brown, author of the Marceau adventure series, visited Libby second grade classes to read from his newest book and share original artwork. In conjunction with Joe's upcoming appearance on Chanel 7's Windy City Live, Scholastic will make a book donation of 80 books to Libby.

Libby is Gifted with Books
Thanks to the generosity of students, parents, staff and the Parent-Teacher Organization at Glencoe West School, Libby will added hundreds of exciting, new books to its libraries!

Fly Guy, Junie B. Jones, Bad Kitty, Tokoyopop, Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, David and the Hunger Games are just a few of new titles that were picked straight from the shelves at that school's Scholastic Book Fair.


You've asked for them, and thanks to the kindness of Glencoe West,
coordinated by Scholastic, we got 'em!
