Each year, on a Friday in September, Bozeman Public School first grade students receive a hard cover copy of a book. In 2016, this was The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade, written by Justin Roberts and illustrated by Christian Robinson. The illustrator was at this year’s Children’s Festival of Book on Saturday, November 5th, 2016 at the Bozeman Public Library. Students and families were able to meet Christian Robinson in person! This book features the story of how a young girl notices everything and decides to take a chance and stand up to bullying. This picture book is a gift from the Bozeman Schools Foundation’s Links to Literacy Program.
On the following Friday in September, first grade students and their families are then invited to the Bozeman Public Library from 2:30 – 4:00 pm to participate in extension of the book activity stations including art projects, activity stations, kite and key ring making and other fun activities.
Thank you so much for your support of the Links to Literacy Program. We love your feedback. If you would like to help with book selection for next year, please let us know. We hope the students, parents and teachers enjoyed this book!

In the Spring of 2017, we hosted the 12th Annual Excellence in Education celebration, honoring 40 Worthy Student Scholarship Recipients from the class of 2017 and the distinguished educators who have made a difference in their lives. Worthy Student Scholars receive a $1,500 scholarship to further their education. Your support of this event is integral to the achievement of these students and educators. This event takes place in May each year but we will take donations towards Worthy Student Scholarship or Sponsorship of the Celebration throughout the year.
