Library Construction Project Update
The library construction project is progressing, and we are hoping for a late November opening. We have a small temporary library set up in the library classroom (adjacent to the counseling center). Students with a presigned pass from a teacher can come down to check out books. Those who are seeking project help or college essay assistance should e-mail Mrs. Strege to set up an appointment.
Classroom Video on Demand
Streaming Media Services
If you have your own personal streaming account, recognize that you may be violating the terms of your streaming agreement by using it in school. Our Swank performance license only covers certain studios. Swank offers a movie search tool on their website, making it easy to find which movies are covered by our license. Go to swank.com/K-12-schools. Look for the magnifying glass in the upper-right corner to search the site by title, genre, keyword, director and even actor. You’ll see search suggestions pop up as you begin typing; anything not labeled “Single Event License” is covered. If you have questions about a specific title, please contact Jen Strege.
