April 14-15: Spring Break

Returning End of the Year Items to the Media Center

As the end of the year approaches, please go ahead and return any items with a barcode that you are no longer using. Because I am also the testing coordinator, the last 2 weeks of school I will mostly be focused on testing. If you all could help me by returning as many items as possible in the months of April and May, I would very much appreciate it.


Important Reminders

1. Please email me if you would like to bring your students for checkout before Spring Break. I have times available today and tomorrow.

2. Next week (April 21-25) will be B Week: Computer Lab.

3. Don't forget to answer the Autism Awareness question on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

April is Poetry Month!

In April we will celebration National Poetry Month. We will celebrate by:

1) Recognizing Shel Silverstein as our author of the month.

2) Sharing poems via the annoucements.

3) Having a "Poem in My Pocket" day.

If you have any other ideas or suggestions for celebrating poetry, please email me!
