Student art will be featured at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library each month in an effort to recognize and celebrate the hard work and talent displayed by local children.

For November, Mrs. Orique’s third-grade class at Bijou Community School has provided a large Thanksgiving mural featuring Indians, Pilgrims and sailing Mayflowers, and Mrs. Willmett’s first-grade class at Tahoe Valley Elementary School is exhibiting colorful handprint turkeys.

The display will remain up throughout the month, so stop by and enjoy the artistic efforts of these hard-working young people. Each month, a group from a different school will be featured.

The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library is located at 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. and is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For more information, call (530) 573-3185.

Bijou Community School’s got PIE – Partners in Education. The community is invited to an open house from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday in the Family Room, portable A-11, to see the school’s parent center.

The center features books, videos and materials to check out to Bijou families to support children’s learning.

The purpose of the Family Room is to encourage families to come to school and meet one another. Staff and teachers will answer questions about what children are learning at school and how parents can help them with academics at home.

The goal is to support family involvement in education. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school and go to better schools. Bijou is striving to be that better school.

Anyone who has a particular concern can set up an appointment to meet with Charna Silver, parent liaison, at (530) 543-2337, ext. 269.

They also can come to the Family Room during regular school hours and spend some time looking at the materials available for check-out. Directions for check-out are posted near the door.
