Are You Ready...?

It's hard to believe that we already have one month of school under our belts. Fall is quickly approaching, with the start of football season and (we hope!) some cooler weather. Here's what September is bringing to the Media Center.

September Events

Fall Book Fair

Our Fall Book Fair is coming! Letters and brochures will be in your mailboxes next week to send home in the September 12 Friday Folder.

We will use Sign Up Genius to sign up for preview and purchase times. Each class will have a 15 minute block to create a wish list. Look for an email at the end of next week to sign up.

I do need some fourth and fifth grade classes to volunteer as "buddy" classes for our kindergarten classes for previews only. As a buddy class, you will first help your kindergarten friends with their wish lists. After the kindergarten class leaves, your class will then make their wish lists. This will mean we would need our fourth or fifth grade class for 30 minutes instead of 15 minutes. Buddy classes get first choice of preview and buying times! If you are willing to volunteer, please email me!

Monday Media Moments

This year, I will be offering a Monday Media Moment. These will be mini staff development opportunities. Monday, September 8, please join us in the Media Center from 3:30 to 4:00 for Media Catalog Basics: Using the Media Catalog at School and at Home.

Stay tuned for October's Media Moment: Advanced Media Catalog: Creating Lists and Finding Safe Websites

Media Center Reminders

  • Please only send 3 students to the Media Center at a time.
  • Students need choice cards and shelf sticks.
  • Please monitor your students, especially on the new furniture.

New Magazines

Don't forget that you are able to copy an article from a magazine for use in your classroom. This is considered "fair use." If you have any questions about copyright, stop by and ask!
