Activities in the Media Center

We were closed for 3 days this month due to ACT ASPIRE Testing!


Poetry Slam - Students brought their lunches into the Media Center and heard original poems performed by their classmates! We had 17 students participate, which was great, since we didn't give them much notice.


Library Club Activity - The Library Club decorated the library for book fair and did an AMAZING job! They worked all the way through from the planning stages to completion, and we were impressed with their dedication and talent!


Book Fair "Under the Sea" - We saw all the English classes and did quite well with the book fair fundraising. Lots of books made it into the hands of students, and we allowed the students to make suggestions for books for us to add to the library. We used book fair profit to add all the new titles they wanted (and there was much rejoicing)!
