Activities in the Media Center
We were closed for 4 days this month due to snow/ice!
Blind Date with a Book - Students could pick books based off of a "personal ad" on the front, with no idea what book they were actually getting. If they filled out a response card after they finished it, they got some candy! We also encouraged students to post books they "LOVED" to share with others.
Read Across America - Ms. Kellett's class came to visit the library and Mrs. Jenkins read Horton Hatches the Egg, by Dr. Seuss, in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday!
Regional PTSA Meeting - was held in the RMS Media Center
The first Maker Monday was February 2nd, and we had 11 students attend! Mrs. Parker, a math teacher at RMS, taught students how to knit and we will use our new skills to knit hats for preemies in the NICU! This is an on-going project and we will continue to meet with Mrs. Parker to learn more and create our hats.
SCJBA Party/Voting - 42 students participated in the SC Junior Book Award program, and 25 completed at least 3 of the 20 nominee titles, qualifying for a party! Students voted for their favorite book, and Unchained was the school winner. State-wide, the winner was The Raft.
Library Club Activity - The Library Club has done an amazing job decorating the library with valentines and they made origami heart bookmarks! They also conducted a special scavenger hunt in the library, and created The Library Times newsletter which includes a book review, ideas for the library, upcoming events, and contests!

Mrs. Parker was a very patient teacher, as we had a hard time at first!
