After School Program - Basic First Aid

Darin Foster from the Red Cross came to the Endicott Library this week to teach the kids some basic first aid. Everyone had a great time and everyone left with more knowledge about first aid. We were missing a lot of our kiddos due to a local school play, but we hope to have another first aid class this fall sometime. :)


Today we had a special guest, Ashley from WSU, who came to talk to us about dental hygiene. We read the books "Show Me Your Smile!" by Christine Ricci, "Pony Brushes His Teeth" by Michael Dahl, and "Read, Set, Brush!" by Matt Mitter. Then we did some teeth brushing activities and Ashley sent each child home with a new toothbrush and toothpaste. It was a fun morning! :)

Sasquatch: Ape-Man or Myth?

Thank you, David George Gordon for the fun and informative presentation on the mysterious and iconic Northwest creature, Sasquatch. We had 5-8th graders, school staff, and community members present for this great program! We even had some local stories to share. :)

Family Trivia Night in Endicott

Z is for Fuzzy

Fuzzy was our word of the day for Storytime. We talked about the letter Z and it's sounds and traced big Z's and little z's. We read the books "The Great Fuzz Frenzy" by Janet Stevens, "Bear's Loose Tooth" by Karma Wilson, and "You Are (Not) Small" by Anna Kang. Then I told the kiddos a story about warm-fuzzies and cold-pricklies. We talked about how we can give warm-fuzzies and each child went home with a little bag of warm-fuzzies to share with their families.

Poet Visit

We were lucky to have Tod Marshall, the current WA state poet laureate, visit the Endicott School and Endicott Library last week. He met with every single age group at the school and even had enough energy to hold a family program at the library in the evening. He taught us about poetry, read us work from himself and others, held mini workshops with the students, helped the students write their own poems, and everyone had a chance to read/present their new work. He was very adaptable in each environment and the students just loved him!
