The lessons portion of the blog will no longer be updated as I have moved activities to my district's own teaching & learning platform.
This site is due to expire in early 2022, so make note of any links, lessons and activities in which you find value. Once it's gone, it's gone!
Keep 'on reading.
I am sitting in the library as I write this. Where has the summer gone?
Our computer technicians have spent the past several weeks trying to get all the returned devices ready for the new school year.
I am so proud that we had such a high device return rate and that very few of the devices returned were deemed unusable. Thank you for taking care of the technology.
If you kept a device for use during summer school or were unable to return your device during the many dates we set aside for device returns, please BRING it school during Open House or the first week of school.
If you do not return a device or otherwise contact the school regarding the status of your device, CCSD will assume the device has been stolen and proceed accordingly.
We have tons of great new books to share with you! I've been experimenting with my Cricut Maker and learning what this cool machine can do. Activities for the Maker Space are being planned and I can't wait to welcome classes to the Library for lessons, activities and check-out. It's been way too long. BTW-the new media parapro is still yet to be determined as is whether that person will work in the library on a full or part-time basis.
Keep reading and we'll see you soon!
