Final 4 voting opened at the beginning of this week and will remain open through April 4th. Students can vote via this link or by visiting the PTMS Virtual Library. The Final 4 winners will be announced on April 5th when voting opens for the final competition.
We are so excited to see which of these popular books will win!
Highlighted Library Lesson - 8th Grade Science Agriculture Project
The students located information about the farm-to-market process, farming methods, food safety and the government's role, and biotechnology. They were required to use the EBSCOhost database, which the library subscribes to, in order to locate at least one piece of information. The final projects were created using Microsoft Publisher or Glogster.
It was a meaningful way for the students to learn more about the products grown in Pennsylvania.
Teens Benefit from Spending More Time with Parents
