Monthly Media Minute

Chantilly Montessori Media Center

December 2015

Thank you to all parents and grandparents who have volunteered in the media center this fall. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Media Survey

If you didn't have a chance to take the survey in November, please take a moment to complete the parent survey regarding our media program. More responses are needed. The survey should take about 5 minutes. Your opinion is valued!

One Access Update

Have you had a chance to login to the CM Library with your child? There are great online resources available as well as books! Login information was sent home earlier in the year. Please e-mail me if you need additional information.

Do you have a favorite winter holiday book?

If so, please add it to our Padlet!
