Getting in the Holiday Spirit

As the end of the semester approached, our library media center was buzzing with activity. We started the six weeks off with CEFA Testing for four days and a week-long Scholastic Book Fair.

Right before leaving for Thanksgiving break, Mrs. Alexander and Mrs. Arvizu collaborated with Mr. Van de Merghel on a lesson plan in which students used a library database to answer their research questions.

Our library media center hosted STAAR testing class displacements during the third week; accommodating over 500 students each day. The semester closed with ACP testing where the Special Education department made good use of the large space to provide their students with a testing environment suited to their needs.

Scholastic Book Fair!

Special Thanks...

Dr. Rosenid Badia, Librarian at Franklin Middle School, brought in classes every day for the entire week of our book fair. Our middle school students were eager to browse and add items to their home library collection. Thank you Dr. Badia for helping Hillcrest LIbrary!

Mrs. Roth's ARt 1 & 2 Class

Last six weeks, Mrs. Roth brought in her class to print out 'selfies' for a project. These students were gracious enough to let us display their finished work in our library!! We are so proud of their work!
