November Research Challenge
All library challenges are optional and meant to motivate students. Students who complete the challenge are also strengthening their information literacy skills. According to the American Library Association (2017), “digital literacy is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information, requiring both cognitive and technical skills.” The library is committed to helping all students and staff become effective users of all types of communication.
Kindergarten Tech Time in the Library
- Fundraising for our Adopt-a-Family - STAC will be selling hot chocolate & coffee for $1.00 the mornings of December 3rd-6th.
- Spirit Week Dec. 9th - 13th
- Shopping for adopted families - STAC students go after school with the sponsors and parent volunteers to buy gifts for our adopted families.
- Gift Wrapping - STAC students wrap the gifts at their final meeting
Story Time - Do your children like listening to a story? Story Time has lots of great stories for everyone to listen to. Each story is usually less than 20 minutes long, hopefully just long enough to keep your toddler, preschoolers, and little ones engaged.
The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel is a scripted podcast for middle grade kids, performed by middle grade kids. It is a fun, high-quality mystery that can be described as Goonies meets Spy Kids meets Stranger Things for 8-12 year olds. It was voted as one of the top 50 podcasts of 2016 by The Guardian, and was recently honored as a Peabody award winner.
