Middle School Media Minutes

Volume 3 Issue 3 November 2014

Just a Few Reminders

  • Both media centers are now open every day! Check the staffing schedule for exact hours, but they should be pretty consistent.
  • Have you checked out our website recently? cfallsmsmediactr.weebly.com is the place to go for everything from student lessons to teacher resources to links to great websites.
  • Headphones are to remain in the media centers. The sign out is for students to sign them out for the media center lab only. Bolich has lost all our extra headphones since the beginning of school because they have been removed from the room.
  • If you are unlocking any of the doors, please make sure you relock them so they remain in a locked status. In case of emergency the staff member in the room will need to shut all the doors quickly and both buildings have many doors to take care of to keep the kids safe.

Holiday Happenings

Looking for something to do for the holidays? Downtown Cleveland has their annual Winterfest on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Shopping, free horse and carriage rides, beautiful decorations, hot beverages, tons of food, you get the idea. Check out: http://www.downtowncleveland.com/events/winterfest.aspx for more information. The Cleveland Flea - a flea market like non other. December 12-14, by ticket only http://www.theclevelandflea.com/.
