Other Activities in the Media Center

Greenville Drive Reading All-Stars - The Reading All-Stars program will start in February, and we were excited to get a visit from the Greenville Drive Mascot, Reedy Rip-it, to help them do a short promo video! Mrs. Jenkins has also been planning some fun competition with the ELA teachers to generate more participation.

Murder in the Library (Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt) - We wanted to highlight our mystery genre, and what better way to do that, than to host a murder mystery?! Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Ingle designed a two-part scavenger hunt that involved students using Destiny to look up books, which would lead them to the clues they needed to solve a logic puzzle. It was a lot of fun, and it was a great way to practice finding books in the library!

Maker Events - This month we hosted a knitting workshop with Mrs. Parker, and 8 students attended. We will be working on making hats for preemie babies, so this will be an informal, ongoing project! We were so busy knitting that we forgot to take pictures!!

SIC Meeting and Coffee with the Counselors - We hosted the monthly SIC meeting, and the Guidance department held it's Coffee with the Counselors meeting in the media center as well. We provided a cart of Chromebooks so parents could access information and have a chance to check out the technology available to their students!
