I cannot believe that we are nearing the end of third quarter. We have only 2 months until our next book fair, "Feelin' Groovy: Can You Dig It?" These Techsperts have been amazing! The ideas and the follow through for the ideas are impressive! They have created a Twitter account and YouTube account to convey who they are and what they do. They did that all on their own with no encouragement from me! WOW!
Books are all ordered for this year. I ordered from Follette and Overdrive. Lots of books for students to choose from and the books are the ones selected by students and teachers. LOVE THIS! Many of the new books have been checked out already and have people waiting for the book to come back so they can check it out. I am impressed with the amount of eBooks being checked out this year. I have learned things that I will try next year to make the year go even more smoothly. I am attending workshops to improve the Learning Commons space and usage. This summer there will be a course offered that will focus on improving our Makerspace. EXCITING!!!
Keep checking back to see all of the exciting things going on in the LC!
I got the call this morning that my Book Fair Crew WON FIRST PLACE in the Scholastic Fall Contest. We are very excited! I have watched this group work so hard and I am so proud of the results for their hard work! If you would have asked me if they would get the decorations done the Wednesday before the fair, I would have said NO WAY! If you would have asked me the Wednesday of our book fair if we would make our goals, I would have said NO WAY! This group jumped in and proved me wrong on all counts. They were determined and because of that, they now have a first place finish! Congrats and look forward to seeing Dan Poblocki in May!
