Media Center News

Hi All,

The end of the year is near, and we must start to look at the dates for getting materials back from students. Before I get started let me emphasize the following:

All library materials are available to teachers until the last day of instruction, so the following dates only apply to student checkout. Bookroom checkout policies are set by coaches, so please watch for emails from them concerning end of year returns.

May 6th - Last day for students to checkout books

May 13th - All student books must be returned by this date

Please note:

  • We need all items checked out by students back by the 13th, so that we have time to issue overdue notices and follow up with those students who have not returned what they have borrowed.
  • Your help in getting student materials returned is very important, and we appreciate all you do to help us maintain our school book collection. Please make sure that your class has returned all their books by the 13th.
  • The media center computers will still be available for student use until the last day of instruction. The comic corner will also be open for student use.
  • We will have a Buy One, Get One Free book fair May 9th - May 13th. The fair will close at 12:00 PM on May 13th.
    • There will be no preview for this fair.
    • Only students with money may come on a pass during fair hours.
    • This is a good opportunity for students to get summer reading material.
    • Please take a moment to explain to students how Buy One, Get One Free works.
    • Please also remind them to bring enough money for tax. The price in the flyer does not include tax.
    • Much of this fair's proceeds go to funding the Birthday Book program for the beginning of next year.
  • Classroom bins of Everybody paperbacks and some chapter books are available for teacher checkout, if you need books for students to read.
Again, thank you for all your help. We could not do it without you!

Technology Tips

Staff and Student FLP Surveys should be completed by May 13th. The student link can be found on the school's eCLASS landing page. I have included the Staff link below.

Yearbooks will be delivered on the day of your grade levels field day. There are a few 5th grade students that are unable to purchase yearbooks, if you are willing to donate a book. Please let me know. Donated books are being sold for $18. I also have 16 books that are missing their first page on sale for $10. They are being sold on a first come first served basis.

Coaches' corner

Thank you teachers for your cooperation during our book room inventory.
