Happy December! The library has been in full National History Day research mode this week with both seventh and eighth-grade students in to work on their projects. Students spent the week learning how to navigate databases and look for information on their topics in library books. This year’s NHD theme is Debate & Diplomacy and some of their topics include gentrification, the Bubonic Plague, and disability rights. Thursday and Friday were spent as a “help day” for seventh-grade. Students were able to work on their projects and get assistance from Mrs. Kahn or Ms. Melinson.
Also happening in the library this week was the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference. Usually held in person, this conference went virtual due to COVID. Six high school students were able to attend this important conference virtually. The library’s quiet room turned into a communal conference space. To make the event feel more special, students received SDLC swag bags and lunch.
