A Month in Review
Every morning the library is bustling with about 75 students who are doing a variety of things such as reading, working on homework, checking out books, playing games, or just hanging out with friends.
In addition to the bi-weekly checkout visits from Reading and AIM classes, Mrs. Flood's students conducted research on Child Labor in the library, and Mrs. Sosa and Mrs. Simpson's classes used the library's print and digital resources in their unit on Energy Resources. Mrs. Reece's Technology class also came to the library for a lesson on copyright and plagiarism.
New after-school library programming began this month with Maker Mondays and Tech Tuesdays, and Driscoll held it's 1st Annual Fall Literacy Festival, which was an amazing success! Check out the rest of the newsletter to learn more about these awesome events!
