CvMS MEDIA CENTER HIGHLIGHTS

OCTOBER 2013

BOOK FAIR! BOOK FAIR! READ ALL ABOUT IT!

The book fair was held October 4-10th, and it was a huge success! During that week, the 6th-8th language arts classes were able to visit, browse, and buy new books. 42 total classes and over 1100 students were introduced to a variety of Scholastic titles and encouraged to read. Cleveland Middle School also held an Open House Family Night event and many parents visited the book fair during that time as well. Mrs. Whitaker and Mrs. Cravens want to give a special thanks to ALL the volunteers who helped make it a success. We appreciate you, and thanks to everyone who supported the fall book fair. It will back in the spring 2014. Happy reading!


RED RIBBON WEEK: OCTOBER 23-31, 2013

Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. After collaborating with the guidance counselor, Mrs. Pardue, the media center created a Red Ribbon Week bulletin board and displayed books relating to bullying, drug, alcohol, and tobacco use. Mrs. Whitaker and Mrs. Cravens provided 14 sixth grade classes with information about Red Ribbon Week; students enjoyed watching an award-winning anti-bullying video made by other middle schoolers and then played an interactive game which tested their knowledge and encouraged making good choices.
