News and resources from Raymond Park Mediaplex

Great Start!

We are off to a great school year! It has been wonderful to see students and teachers in the Mediaplex. Now that we have our library classes going, I would love to see students in the Mediaplex labs. I would be happy to find resources or brainstorm ideas of how this space can support your curriculum and students. Please feel free to contact me. I would also be willing to come to a content area or grade level meetings to see how I may be able to support future units. As of right now, the three Middle School Specialists have started gathering resources for units and performance tasks. We have unit 1 completed for ELA. Contact me if you have any questions about the resources. Let me know how I can help you in any way!
