Fall Into Some Reading!

The new school year is in full swing and we have accomplished so much within the library media center! Your kids are staying busy and diving into new challenges and activities everyday. Just take a look! So far we have...

  • checked out an enormous amount of books
  • met our first GOTCHA READING challenge
  • attended a Tailgate Party
  • built numerous things during MakerSpace
  • played a piano with bananas!
  • practiced Digital Citizenship
  • took the Digital Citizenship pledge
  • reviewed ALL the Reading Genres
  • and played around with QR codes

Check Out Process

Students may check out new books when needed but are considered late after two weeks. Students will not be allowed to check out another book until the overdue book is returned or paid for. Once paid for, the student account is cleared. If the book is found after paid for, the student may keep the book. No refunds will be available.

Golden Book Award

The Golden Book Award is a special award given by myself to a class of my choice, once a week. Each week I will try to pick a different class.

The following Classes have received The Golden Book Award so far.

  • Mrs. Howard 2nd
  • Mrs. Speciale 3rd

This year we will be opening a MakerSpace in our media center. This space will be used to create, invent, make, build, think, and learn. Some of the challenges include:

  • Lego Wall
  • Coding
  • Stem Challenges
  • Duct Tape Crafts
  • Dash & Dot
  • Ozobots
  • MakeyMakey

MakerSpace will hopefully be open once a month to media classes and can be utilized by teachers during the month, upon scheduling.
