the community together and with the help of the Alliance provide a book to every student in our

Our next meeting is Thursday 14th from 6:45-8:15. The agenda will include: debriefing the Winter Fair, preparing for the next school event and planning the Social Justice initiative for this school year. Hope to see you there.

Mid-December Book Swap

Remember all the new books students brought home from the CLiF giveaways last year? Well, if there are any that have already been read and would like a new home, gather them up and bring them into the library. For each book donated, you will receive a “book buck” that can be used to choose another book at a school-wide book swap in mid-December. Books can be dropped off anytime.

 Snow Cancellations

It is that time of year! They are predicting a few inches of snow tomorrow and about 4 inches for next Tuesday. Similar to the past, I will send out an All Call through Blackboard Connect at 6:00 AM. In addition, the radio stations will be notified and I will post it to our website.

Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology
works. To highlight the importance of these 21st century skills, Rochelle and our students will be participating in the Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10) and beyond.
