From the Media Center at Hope-Hill

August 2021

WELCOME BACK, STUDENTS, FAMILIES AND STAFF!

The library books have missed you!

... and we have SO MANY NEW BOOKS! Thanks to our commitment to read during last year's March Madness competition, Hope-Hill's Media Center was able to purchase $5000 of new books! Visit with your classes and see what's new!

Did you still have some HH library books? That's great news!

The end of the year is always hectic, and maybe you found some library books at home this summer. No worries! Just have your student return them as soon as possible. And THANK YOU!

Race2Read is back, and it is bigger than ever!

Race2Read has truly become a city-wide initiative, with institutions like Marta and the Airport supporting our challenge to read 10 Million Minutes this school year. Hope-Hill needs its students, families and community supporters to READ! We were runner's up in last year's March Madness competition, and this year we are in it to win it! This month, students (and teachers) will review how to log their reading minutes through My Backpack and the Beanstack tile (students will use their username and the password race2read to log in). Families and community supporters can create their own account on the website and choose Hope-Hill as the recipient of their reading minutes.

Some ways that we keep reading at Hope-Hill...

August's SEL book showcases a unique perspective on back to school

School's First Day of School by Adam Rex is a gentle story that explores first day of school excitement and jitters from the point of view of the school building, and some of its students. Enjoy beautiful illustrations by award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson.
