Highlights From Our Very Busy Year!

With less than two week left of school, I've been asking students to think back and remember what we've done in the library this year, what they've learned and to think about what things they enjoyed most.  Well, I thought it would be a good idea for me to do the same!

I present to you  Memorial School Library Highlights 2013-2014


Thank you to my students, fellow staff and amazing parents for all the support and enthusiasm this year. I could not have done it without you.

We spent some time reflecting this week...

With two and a half weeks left to this school year, I've been doing some reflecting and decided to ask students to think about what we've done in the library.  We had a lot of fun adding their favorite memories to this padlet:

I also asked students for suggestions how we can make our library even better (I'm still collecting their ideas).  I love letting students know their voice counts!

Thinking About Transitions....

So it's June, boy has this year flown by! As usual, I always think about how the year went, what still needs to be done, how to end the year with students and some planning for the next school year. Half of our students will be moving on to the next level school (in my district the three elementary schools are broken into these levels: PreK-1, 2-3, 4-5). This means there's a lot of transitioning for students as well as staff.

There are also some transitions going on in my family.  My son graduated from Law School last week. We've been so lucky to have him nearby these past few years, and now he's transitioning from being a student, to moving to Washington, D.C. and starting a job.

My children, Jessi and Alex

I'll be savoring these last few weeks with our first graders and with my son before they all move on and transition into the next exciting phase of their lives.
