We will accept new Lunchtime Makers starting in January 2016. Starting in January, students will be expected to propose a long-term project to complete during their lunchtime sessions. Sign ups will open the last week before Winter Break, and proposals can be started any time by clicking on the form here.
3D Printing Comes to the CMS Media Center!
We recommend TInkercad for 3D design. The site provides lessons to help students navigate 3D design and printing. Students under the age of 13 will need a signed permission slip in order to use Tinkercad at school. Click here to download the permission slip. Click here for a guide to getting started with Tinkercad.
Keep Up On Due Dates
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that his/her materials are returned on time. Students with overdue items may not check out until the overdue item is returned. Classes do not visit every week like in elementary school, so students should keep up on materials' due dates. Click here for information on how your child can access his/her library record on a computer at home to see which materials he/she has checked out and when they are due.

All suggestions are taken into consideration; however, only titles that are age appropriate and fill a need in the collection will be purchased.
