Welcome back to Tison!
TMS Library Media Specialist
Below is the link to the Tison Middle School Library Homepage! I recommend saving it to your Internet taskbar as there are some great links to Web tools and digital resources. You will also find the library's Google calendar that provides the library's schedule.
Open @ 7:30 AM
Close @ 4:30 PM
Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday ELA Class Schedule
The following is the rotating schedule for the ELA class visits to the library. All Tuesdays are 7th grade classes, while Wednesdays and Thursdays rotate with 6th grade one week and 8th grade the other week.
Tuesdays -- 1st-3rd Periods; 5th-6th Periods; 8th Period
Wednesdays & Thursdays -- 1st-4th Periods; 7th-8th Periods (6TH GRADE WEEK)
Wednesdays & Thursdays -- 2nd-3rd Periods; 5th-8th Periods (8TH GRADE WEEK)
**On these days and during these periods, I'm not always readily available to help with other teachers and students.**
DURING THE PASSING PERIODS
I need to be outside my door monitoring students in the fine arts hallway during passing period; therefore, I don't check out books during this time. If you send students down while it's the passing period, I will ask them to wait until the bell rings.
Students must have a pass from their teacher when coming to the library during a class period. There will be blue library passes in your box by Friday, September 4th, and I keep a basket of extras by the fax machine. Teachers: please send no more than three students at a time.
LUNCHTIME - I don't mind students coming to check out books during their lunchtime as long as I don't have a class or I'm eating lunch.
Club Fridays in the Library
The Tison Chess Club gives students an opportunity to play friendly games of chess against their peers in a low-stress environment. Students of all levels are welcome to come, as help is given to those who need it.

I'm including a few short presentations below over the TexQuest databases. To help students with the various usernames/passwords needed for these databases, I plan to stick labels on the lab computers and to the laptop carts for easier access.
