May Media Mania

Action-Packed Until the End!

We have several major events taking place in the media center this month, capped by a visit from author John David "Dave" Anderson. He will be here all day on Tuesday, May 17, culminating with an evening event from 6:30-8. All schools have been invited to that. (flyer here) If you are interested in helping that night, please let me know.


During the day, we will have an event at 2 pm for all students who have read at least one of his books (so far, it is 185 students, mainly boys; you will get a list next Friday) If you would like to read aloud one of his books, thereby qualifying your entire class, please let me know.


Earlier in the day, we will have smaller groups meet with him in the LGI room. I will be sending out a form for you to sign up. Your class does not have to have read the book to attend one of these. If you have a student who you believe would really benefit (ex: aspiring writer), please let me know. Students will also be able to purchase his books to have them autographed; they are available now.

BOGO May 10-17, LGI Room and Media Center

The Buy One-Get One Free will be in the LGI room from May 10-13, and the media center May 16-17. The spreadsheet to sign up has been shared with CIA teachers & CMS ELA teachers. This is a great time to stock up! I have no idea what is included until I open the cases. I will be open in the evening several times.

Anything else strike you as interesting?

Books Checked out the Most for 2015-16 School Year

Not coincidentally, #1 and #3 are both written by our visiting author, John David "Dave" Anderson. There probably would have been more Wimpy Kids in the Top Ten, but they are frequently overdue or "lost".

GREAT SUMMER READING OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS (& SOME FOR STAFF)

Have a great summer! Feel free to check out some of our books to read!
