Your rocket library crew was busy helping Ms. Klaus' class into the internet. We've also been inputting your homeroom teachers' into every single student account. Please turn your books in on time to avoid our late notice notes! ;)
I found two really cool gadgets free online. The first is the virtual magnifying glass which allows you to magnify small part of the page. This is helpful if one is trying to magnify URL address or parts of a presentation on an a digital projector like the InFocus. Another tool I found is the bookbox which allows you to post the covers of books as displayed in the home page of this site. Looks great, right?!
The award winning student council met at the library classroom to plan for the next event.
Mr. Monroy's classes came in for orientation and learned how to use the Web catalog and EBSCO magazine/newspaper article searches.
Ms.V brought in her classes for the science fair projects.
Ms. Croucher came in with her classes to research images for a class project. More science teachers came in to look at our extensive collection of science fair project books.
The pre-AP science teachers have been coming in with their students to research science fair projects and decide their subject matter. We pulled some books in different subject matters from sports to earth science.
