October in the Media Center

We’ve had a busy beginning to the school year!  

We had our Summer Reading Celebration last month.  Students celebrated on a beautiful Friday morning.  They played games on the inside of a Game Truck, and danced along to music videos outside the truck. Thanks again students for all of your hard work.  The Game Truck was only one reward you received.  You also started school prepared for the year because of all your reading.

We just closed our October book fair.  It ran for four and one-half days and was quite a success.  Shoppers even came out for our Family Night, which coincided with Literacy Night!  Money raised will pay for PebbleGo, a wonderful database designed for our Kindergarten through 2nd grade students.

Last month, students learned how to search the card catalog and put books on hold.  This month, media center classes are introducing nonfiction books to our lower elementary students, and online databases and eBooks to our upper elementary students.

Everyone is looking forward to falling into the pages of a good book!
