Like the previous year, Library Technicians went to Fully Booked to choose some books to add to the MSMC Collection.
For their first meeting, the new Library Technicians had the privilege to play MSMC's newly-acquired board games. Everyone had so much fun.
Our field trip to Fully Booked was a big success on September 24th! Library Technicians purchased 24 new titles to add to the Middle School Collection. Funds were generously provided to restock Colin’s shelf in the library by his family. Colin was an ISM student who was passionate about reading, and who sadly passed away in 2008. His memory and passion for reading remain in the MSMC today through many Middle School readers.
In addition to our book purchase, students received “loot bags” from Fully Booked! On the way home, we had a “mandatory stop” at Cold Stone Creamery to refresh ourselves after all of that shopping! (I recommend the cheesecake ice cream!) You can tell by the photos that a good time was had by all! - Mrs. Parry
On September 10th, we had our first featured teacher, Mrs. Karianne Cook, come and share information and insights about one of her favorite authors, Tamora Pierce, who writes in the fantasy genre. It was so interesting that Mrs. Cook found connections between storylines and characters in many of this author's novels. Pierce has written many different series, so club members found it difficult to choose which one to read first! Thank you Mrs. Cook!
