In The Beginning.....2016-2017

Find a Treasure in the Library

   To begin the school year, we chose a pirate theme to highlight our teachers as treasures at SCHS.  It is a pleasure to work with you all.  Whether it is collaborating to build meaningful lessons for your class, reserving space on the library calendar for you, ordering those "must haves" books and supplies, printing posters, setting up orientations, etc., we want to be a resource  for you and support your efforts. We truly believe you are the heart of the school.  "In our book, you are a treasure!"

   We also used the theme to emphasize the treasures we have in the library for the students.   A treasure chest in the ship held free books for the students to take and read.  Also, we receive new books every month and we update a special "New Books" display in the center of the library.  Many of you brought your classes in for regular checkout during the Fall semester. We would love to add your class picture to our "iRead" window.

   The pirate ship is presently on loan at Woodcreek Middle School and was used as part of their 2016 book fair display. It is scheduled to move to Eagle Springs Elementary in January, 2017.

   Believe it or not, there is even an International "Talk Like a Pirate Day" (ITLAPD, September 19). Mr. Jeffreys posed as our resident pirate on that day.






    Research - It's a No-Brainer

    We are a Continuous Learning Community!

    To encourage students to research and to demonstrate that reading and researching is a life-long process, some teachers wrote about their own meaningful discoveries or amazing facts they have researched .  They even made Bitmojis of themselves.  See if you can figure out who's who! Check it out in the library lab.

    Our faculty is so smart!
