End of Year Report

We flew through an amazing year with integrating comics with science, conducting research, helping math students find statistics in books, and adding National Library Week programming to the mix. Please read the document below for an overview of how we worked with the students and why bringing classes to the library is so important.

Courtney McKinney-Whitaker Visits

Courtney McKinney-Whitaker, author of The Last Sister, visited SHS this past Tuesday (May 12th) and spoke with Mr. Stuard’s social studies classes. She talked to them about her background as a reader, what classes she took in college, and talked about the writing process including showing a photo of her drafts stacked on top of each other (it was a TALL pile!). The students asked great questions, and Courtney kindly gave us an autographed copy of her book so students can find out what happened to the main character after the terrible catamount attack.

National Library Week

Last week, we celebrated National Library Week with Putt Putt on Tuesday, a Minute to Win It game on Wednesday, selfie with a book Thursday, and Thanks A Latte Friday. Thank you for being a BFOL (Best Friend of the Library) and participating in National Library Week!

National Library Week – Thank you!

Thank you all for being so supportive of National Library Week and the craziness we hosted in the library (Putt Putt, Stack the Cups, Selfie, and the Thanks a Latte).  Attached please find a Powerpoint that will run on the library tv with highlights of the week.  Stay tuned for a movie recap (being created by Ashley Layne) ….
A special thank you to Mr. Stevens for letting us borrow the putter and for Jennifer Richards for talking to a student and getting the putting green.  Thank you to the staff members who were brave enough to send selfies with a book – Joe Timmons, Arlene Newett, Arelis Vera, Karen Meadows-Rogers, Jeff Kuntz, Tinashe Gwata,  Stephanie Donald, Kellie Bertrand, Gary Purinton, and Telena Monosso.  Thank you to the students who participated in Putt Putt, Stack a Cup, Selfies, and Thanks a Latte.  And, a super big thank you to the BFOLs who have collaborated with us and let us into your teaching lives!
