READ Celebrity Posters

READ Celebrity Posters

We will be taking the next set of READ posters on Tuesday, January 27th at 8:00. PLEASE REMIND STUDENTS who have reached the five 200-page book challenge to come to the library for a form to take to their parent for a signature. We really need to promote this as it is a great peer motivator. Teachers who missed out will have an opportunity for their photos to be taken too.

Don't forget to order from Limitless Libraries to be entered for an IPad Mini.

Major Project Coming Up?

I am eager to help out with any and all upcoming projects. The library has research resources including EasyBib for citations, online and print encyclopedias, and ME! Just send me a description of your plan and what you may need and I will work with you to make an AWESOME project.

The MakerSpace is taking off! Thanks for letting your students have time for this opportunity to express their creativity.
