• Local author, Christine Day, visited the Lake Forest Park Elementary School library

    Local author, Christine Day, visited the Lake Forest Park Elementary School library to share her debut middle grade novel "I Can Make This Promise” with sixth grade students. This author visit was made possible by Third Place Books. Christine Day is a local author and grew up in the North Seattle area, though she now lives in Lake Stevens. Christine attended Meridian Park, Einstein, and Shorewood. Inspired by her family's history, Christine’s novel tells the story of a girl who uncovers her family's secrets--and finds her own Native American identity.

    Lake Forest Park students asked excellent questions and Christine provided them with her inspiration to become an author as well as the particulars of the writing and publishing process.

    Third Place Books has Christine’s book in stock for all interested readers. Lake Forest Park students loved the book and Christine’s visit and extend a heartfelt thank you to Third Place Books and Christine Day!

  • LFP business donates dictionaries to fourth graders

    Posted by Frank Kleyn on 11/13/2019


    On Wednesday, November 13th, Douglas Carl, owner of "A Better Day Salon" at the Lake Forest Park Town Center visited the Lake Forest Park school library to deliver new dictionaries to every fourth grader at Lake Forest Park Elementary School. Douglas taught students that as fourth graders they are moving from “learning to read” to “reading to learn” and a dictionary is a wonderful tool that can be used for learning at school and home. He spoke about the importance of using words to solve problems and how he hopes “A Better Day Salon’s” donation can help spread goodwill and knowledge throughout the Lake Forest Park community. Principal Aimee Miner and Douglas worked together to hand the books out to the thankful students.

    Teachers and students look forward to using the dictionaries in the classroom and at home. The Lake Forest Park staff and students are very appreciative of this generous donation and look forward to using the dictionaries.

    The Library has been abuzz with readers, speakers, searchers, and thinkers.  Below are some photos of our students in action.  Second graders were choosing just right books.  Third and fourth graders were using iPads in a Library scavenger hunt.  Fourth and fifth graders are working hard reading Global Reading Challenge books and writing questions for the books.  Sixth graders were exploring books written in verse and practicing/performing a reading of a poem.  Way to go, students!
