We are having a book fair the night of Ice Cream Socials in the LGI room! I think it will be a great success. Please direct people to the LGI room after they visit you!

Tuesday- 1:00 P.M.

I will be holding an optional training for Microsoft 365 in the computer lab. I will show you the basics of the online version of Microsoft, how to save your documents, and how to use the calendar.

Technology in the Media Center

We have the following available for check out:

  • 15 Spheros
  • 10 iPads
  • Cart of iTouches

**** 1st-4th Grade will be getting a cart of Netbooks again this year.

Book Check Out

We will be creating a schedule for classes to come in regularly to check out books. I will come around and individually meet with everyone on Monday and Tuesday. You will be trained by myself the first couple of times you bring your class to learn media center procedures and checkout procedures.

The Vision

As I shared last year, I want the Media Center to be a place where kids can collaborate, get a hands on experience in the Makerspace, check out amazing books, do research and projects, and use it as a hub for our curriculum. To make this amazing vision happen, we need everyone in the school to be collaborative. I know we will make this happen together and I am so lucky to be a part of this staff. Let's Do This!!
