Finals week is always a rather odd time in the library and this week was no exception. Sandwiched between two days off, the High Schoolers took their finals Tuesday through Thursday and the library was the place to be between tests. We had a packed house as students crammed in last minute studying, snacked on treats provided by the Parents Association, and debriefed with fellow classmates as to how they think they did.
On Tuesday Ms. Sterling’s Book Club elective came in for a mini book talk to hear about some of our new books. Then they tried out our new method for reader’s advisory: placing a gold star sticker on the spine of a great book.
On Thursday The Glass Knife held their final retreat – Ms. Melinson shared that she’s stepping down as GK advisor for new adventures (but she’s still your librarian!) She shared some of the history of The Glass Knife’s traditions then staffers got down to business to work on the book.
Friday was a teacher work day which meant an extra day off for students and some behind the scenes work for your librarians. Also on Friday, Ms. Melinson, Mr. Crabb, Doctora, Rachelle, and Mr. Wells took our international students out to Ming Dynasty in celebration of the Lunar New Year.
