March 2016 Monthly Report
LMS Library Mission Statement
The mission of the LMS Library is to foster a learning community that encourages students to love reading and creates lifelong learners, who are effective and ethical users of information and resources.
What Happened in March...
- We had 11 classes come in for visits- Mrs. Walker and Mr. Calhoun came to check out books. Mrs. Phend came for a Skype session with Prince EA. Mrs. Richey came in for one lesson on graphic novels and biographies where we read the graphic novel "Tesla" and they checked out books and her class came in for a lesson on poetry where we read a book of poems and then we recorded a poem ourselves.
- We had 441 books checked out, 4 books placed on hold, and 159 students visited outside of class time despite the week we were closed because of renovations and the week we were out for Spring Break.
- Miss McCutcheon attended the South Carolina Association of School Librarians conference the first week in March. Here I got to meet really awesome authors such as James McTeer (Minnow), Stephanie Bodeen (The Raft), Jeffrey Salane (Lawless), and J.E. Thompson (Girl From Felony Bay). I also attended sessions where I learned a lot from some really great presenters. I look forward to implementing some of the new tools I learned while at conference with Lakeview Middle faculty and students.
- The South Carolina Junior Book Award Winner for 2015-2016 was crowned while I was at conference. I am excited to announce that Alan Gratz's "Prisoner B-3087" was the winner! A big thank you to those students who participated in the Junior Book Award Celebration and voted for their favorite.
New Look of the Library
Greenville Drive Reading All-Stars
We had over 40 students achieve the Greenville Drive Reading All Star Incentive. These students read 5 books from February to March. They received a free ticket to the Greenville Drive Celebration Game on April 11th, a free t-shirt, a free book from the Public Education Partners Book Fair, and they get to participate in the pregame parade on the field. Help us to a celebrate a job well done by these students!
