It was another wet week here at the Matthews Library, but the sun managed to come out Friday just in time for Spring Fest.
Monday featured Mr. Crabb’s 7th graders in for the beginning of March Madness. Ms. Melinson read the first line of a variety of books with over-arching themes like refugees, colonization, revolution, and Japan, and then students picked books based on their covers.
Tuesday was a holiday we can all get behind: Tea for Two Tuesday. The library office was set up with an assortment of teas and cookies for students to enjoy.
All week long, the Glass Knife have been having super secret board meetings to discuss what will make it into this year’s book.
Friday was Spring Fest and the Passport Lunch. Each advisory brought a different food and students went from classroom to classroom sampling all the different foods with the proceeds going to Breakthrough. In the library, an array of tea, from Boba, to Chai, to Russian, to Chinese black tea, was set up along with cookies, lemon bars, lamingtons, Russian apricot rolls, Russian walnuts, and other yummy treats.
