That is exactly what I want to do at my middle school.... it is a very low income school, we have access to pre-school students in the preschool program at the adjoining High School. Please tell me more about our progam.... do you have a theme every week? how much coaching do you give your middle school students? how many students do you have reading at once?
Thanks so much... Anne Smith, middle school librarian Sullivan North Middle School
We did that for Women's History month.. bring a can of food for the Women's Center and your fines were forgiven.. Worked out real good!
This does sound exciting. Can you share a few of the details?
I know what you mean about butterflies.. Our library assistant of 29 years has been moved to clerical in the office. She is going through all the stages of grief. She will still be tech contact for the school. We have 1200 middle schoolers. Thank goodness Joyce is with us. We have to share her with another middle school.. Last year she was on board every other week.. this year we are hoping for every other day!
Things are going to be very different this year. Our library is the hub of our school and we want to keep it that way!
It is so sad to see libraries left with little because they aren't considered to be necessities.
