Moses Media News

July 31, 2014

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to our 7th and 8th grade students! I also want to say welcome to our 6th grade students. This is going to be a fantastic year at Moses Middle School and I can't wait to get started.

Students will be able to visit and check out books starting on the first day of school. Library orientation will start on August 5th and continue through the second week of school.

Media Center Purpose

Our goal in the media center is to encourage students in expanding their ideas about reading. We want the media center to be a resource and tool for both students and staff to use in both learning and instruction.

Media Center Procedures

Students will be able to check out 3 books this year. One of the 3 books will be the extended texts for English/Language Arts. Books may be checked out for 2 weeks at a time with the exception of the extended texts.

This year, we will be implementing fines. Students will be assessed 10 cents a day for overdue books and will not exceed $1 fine in total for each book that is overdue.
