Media Center News

Welcome Back!

I hope you all had a wonderful summer and got to spend time with family and friends! For those of you that don't know me, I am Laura Collier, the new Media Specialist here at Sand Creek! I previously taught 3rd grade for 9 years at Sand Creek.


For those of you that I do know, I'm so excited to be your media specialist and have lots of goals that include collaboration, team teaching to help integrate technology, and being your go to resource for technology and project materials!


I will be putting together a newsletter each month or whenever I have exciting resources to share. This first edition will be about classroom management tools and books that we have in the media center to help teach those essential beginning of the year skills.


I always have my door open and want to be a part of what is going on at SCE! Please let me know how I can support you and if I don't have the answer, I will find out :)

Media Center Housekeeping

  • Each classroom will need a crate or bucket to have your students return books in.
  • Someone will come by on your library day to collect the books in the morning for check-in.
  • Please e-mail me when your team meets for planning! I hope to attend as many team meetings as possible.

Apps to help get your year started!

Book Room Update!

Thanks to Lisa and Amy for their help with moving the book room to the back room of the library!! The location is much more central with the RTI resource room attached. We have organized all books and will have more info coming with check out procedures. We hope you will be able to use the resources to support guided reading groups and books clubs. In addition, there are a ton of professional books that have been in the library but are now in the book room if you are interested.
