Can't think of inexpensive gifts for family and friends during this winter season? During the week of December 5-9, 2016, the CHS library will host holiday computer coding sessions for this purpose. Visitors will have the opportunity to create animated holiday cards for friends and family using Scratch Studio. A brief code tutorial is available for getting started. Google Chrome Carts will be on hand at the front of the library for use.

A few weeks ago, Ms. Hughes took her Arts 1 and 2 class to a whole new level of creativity. Her students created a personal replica of Guillermo Del Toro's filmmaking genius from scraps and childhood dolls. Check out the "Cabinet of Curiosities" currently assembled on the library display case.

While I admit this is belated given the holiday season, take a look at the creepy confections students created during the Halloween Candy Craft Makerspace 2016. They used marshmallows, gummy bears, chocolate candy corns, Nerds candies, and toothpicks to create these gruesome creations. A few displayed them on Halloween bags.
