Welcome Back to School!
Students were anxious to see what the MS/HS Library looked like the first day. Students were greeted by Ms. Bell, Library paraprofessional, and Ms. Schneider as well. Students checked out new and old books starting the first day and looked at all the new books, new posters, and new seating ! This year, students will SOON be able to work with LEGOS on a large table made by Mr. Herman, Building Trades teacher, and his students. Students are excited to have more of this activity, in the Library. Students can also do Origami, puzzles, (crossword, word search, jumbles, etc.), and cCalligraphy/drawing activities if they choose to. There areNEW colored pencils, markers, pencils, and glue sticks available for students, when they work at the school library. The Library is open every school day from approx. 7:45AM-4:15PM and most days during lunch (M,T,TH,F), but, closed for 1/2 of lunchtime on Wednesdays.
Mr. Klever's 6th grade students, and one section of 8th grade students, have begun learning about the library by taking Library Skills classes this Fall with Ms. Schneider, (MS/HS Librarian). 6th and 8th grade students will rotate specials throughout the year. 7th graders will rotate Specials classes also, except, they will not have Library, this year, as a Specials Class. They will be taught skills when they come for visits with their teacher.
High School students will have skills review when they come with their teachers to do research assignments.
September brings Intellectual Freedom Week (formerly Banned Books Week)!
October will bring 'Tween/Teen Read Week! More on these events will be coming soon!
Remember to FALL into a good book and RE "LEAF" stress, READ !
Ms. Schneider, MS/HS Librarian
PS: If your child has school library books lying around your home, PLEASE make sure they get returned to the school! At the end of school last year, the middle school students had 44 unreturned library books!! We need these books back in order to avoid having to try to re-order them next year.
