Digital Literacy

Sixth graders are being introduced to the research process program Noodletools. Students will learn skills such as note-taking, citation, annotation and collaborative research and writing.

Social Studies Research Continues

Sixth graders are having fun moving forth with their Mesopotamian research. They continue to explore on their imaginary island while sharpening their research skills and curiosity. Eighth grade continue to research topics on A Just Society.

Poetry Month

In April we celebrated Poetry Month in both middle school libraries. Sanborn's display allowed students to contribute a leaf of their own poetry, haiku or quote to the Poet-Tree. Peabody had students creating their own unique origami pieces.
