Satchel Ford Elementary Winter 2015

Library Update

First of all I would like to thank all of the Satchel Ford students, parents, and community members for all of the support and willingness to help during these past 2 months! From the moment that it was known that the library sustained damage from the flood, I have felt the love and support for our school. The library is not fully operational at this time but we are working towards it! We have new carpet, some new drywall, and fresh paint. Unfortunately, we did lose our bookshelves, tables, and chairs. We will be getting new furniture and then we will be able to put our books back on the shelves. We did have to remove approximately $22,000 worth of books that were damaged from the flood but we are already working on building back our book collection. I have been working in classrooms with students and our Kindergarten and 1st grade students are visiting the library for story time and book checkout. Thanks again for everyone’s concern for the library.

We have a student cart of 30 iPads that can be checked out through the media center. Check the Outlook calendar to see if it is available!

The iPads have been updated and have apps on them including a QR scanner, World Book Animals, BrainPop, BrainPop Jr., Socrative, Destiny, and Scholastic New Magazines (you will need your subscription login.)

If you want a new app added to the iPad, you will need to email Julia information about the app one week in advance so it can be loaded onto the iPads.
