Erwin School Library Staff Update

Nancy Cravey, School Librarian

2 May 2016

April reading minutes will be collected May 10.

It is a good time of year to collect any library materials that you no longer need and return them. Staff materials will be due the last day of school. I will print lists for all staff who have items checked out this week.

Students may check out library books until May 27. All student books will be due June 3. Student notices will be sent weekly for the rest of the school year. Please remind and encourage students to return their books. If they have lost a book, the lost book fee is $5.00.

Discovery Education: Science Fair Central

Discovery Education offers step by step resources for science fairs. This would be a great to share with parents or to use for a class project.

Check out Science Fair Central at Discovery Education.

ALL students have Discovery Education accounts, so this resource can be used at home. They access them with their student ID numbers and their birthdate passwords. This is the same login information they use for ebooks.

Tech Tip: Webmail has a new look

You will see this new look when you are accessing Webmail (Office365) externally, i.e. using guest sign in on devices, from home, etc. Type the GCS given username/user id , i.e. and then the password to gain access to email.

See the screenshot below for a preview.
