Cambridge Media Center

Information for Teachers and Staff

Busy, Busy, Busy!

You may have seen... we are definitely up and running and BUSY! In the mornings, we have close to 200 students coming, going, computing, reading, collaborating, finishing, printing, cutting, pasting, studying, and yes, socializing. Stop by and walk through--you may see some of your students cramming for your upcoming test!

Simple Policies for Teachers

...a few guidelines...


  • Please send no more than 4 unsupervised students to the media center during class. Students must have a signed, dated pass with all student names and a clear assignment. Students who are not working will be sent back to the classroom.
  • STUDY HALL TEACHERS: Please send only 2 students at a time to the media center during study hall.
  • We will be happy to laminate for you--drop off by lunch and we'll have it for you by 3:30.
  • Please speak to Mrs. MacMillan about using the media center or lab with your classes, and she will put you on the calendar.
  • We have an opening collection of over 4000 books and DVDs for your use. We also have cameras (still and video) available for teachers to check out. Please let us know if you have titles you'd like to see added to our collection.
  • Substitutes may not bring classes into the media center or lab. Please speak to Mrs. MacMillan if you wish to discuss special circumstances.

Have you seen???

The latest addition to the CHS Media Center is a collaboration and presentation area known as the Mediascape (still pondering a catchy name). Up to 4 laptops (or other devices--coming soon) can be connected, and up to 2 can be simultaneously displayed on one of the flat screen TVs in the seating area. The Mediascape is best for groups up to approximately 15. How can you use this in your teaching?? Come by and schedule your group!
