Primary Source Documents

Hey there! For all teachers interested in using more primary source documents in your lessons, I have just gotten word about a brand-spankin' new website called The Digital Public Library of America. It has launched only two days ago and is already a great wealth of information about history with lots of primary sources - check out the timeline feature - pretty awesome! Here's the link if you want to check it out. And if you like what you see, check back because they have plans to expand:

Old Technology Making Way for New Technology

Nobody has rushed to the library to grab up the old cassette players. Don't blame you. You may have noticed the ad went out for our older TVs and even carts. They are pretty cheap if you want one. Come see me or Mary with questions or cash.

Our last order of the year for books has been placed! They won't be here for a little while, but with all the testing, we should be able to get them on the shelves quickly. PLUS, I'm going to attempt to get out the BookMobile during lunch a couple times. We'll put new books on it if we can.

Testing, Testing, One, Two, Three

Pretty much - the media center is full most days of testing students. Please check the calendar that Mary sends out on Fridays if you have questions about specific days...we'd love to squeeze you and your students in here, if we can.

Talk with us! Ask us! We want to help!
