Power of Youth


The first full week of school in so many weeks! I am hoping this means we are done with the snow for the season! It will be nice to be able to go outside and enjoy the spring weather!


The students had their walk out on Tuesday. It was a powerful and intense 17 minutes as over 400 students stood outside to honor the victims in Florida and use their voice to demand change. We were so proud to be a part of this student led assembly.









The library has been busy with senior internship meetings and seniors preparing for their last few weeks of classes. It is hard to believe that these students were once freshmen are now about to embark on the next phase of their lives!

The Joy of Sassy!!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

“Step with care and great tact, and remember that life’s a great balancing act.”

Every year on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss's birthday we celebrate "Read Across America." This is an opportunity for schools and libraries across the nation to take time out and read! We should all take a moment to slow down, get away from all the craziness of life and read. The library has some great new books in for your pleasure!

The Joy of Sassy!

Sassy is back at school! It has been so busy in the library with English research papers this term that Sassy has not been in much. She is back this week and her timing is perfect. She is so happy to be back with her students and has provided a lot of comfort and joy to all of us in the high school. Nothing makes us happier than to see the joy on students faces as they play, pet and snuggle with Sass! With all the craziness going on, its nice to have something small like Sassy bringing a smile to our faces! Senior Keyette-Lei Neves took these amazing photos of Sassy for her Digital Photography class!

Research Writing Full Force

Third term is off and running and it is the busiest time of the year in the library. We have begun the research writing component for English. English classes have been in the library all week focusing on lessons such as evaluating web sites, searching efficiently in Google and analyzing novels using literary criticism databases.
Constantly busy but a great way to develop and fine tune our research skills in a number of different avenues.

Monkey Hunt

Preschoolers continue to help find our missing animals that keep escaping our reading books!! This week monkeys escaped from the book Warning Do Not Open This Book / Adam Lehrhaupt. Luckily our fearless littles were able to find the last monkey and put him back in the book!!!

Welcome Third Term!


Congratulations to all our students for a successful mid-term week! We now move into the second half of the year. Sending good vibes for a successful third term!

Crocodile Hunt

Preschoolers were very active in the library this week helping us hunt down the escaped crocodile! We read Open Very Carefully: A Book with Bite / Nick Bromley. A crocodile makes an unexpected visit to another story and decides to chew his way out of the book. Where does he end up? Great question, so our preschoolers had to go on a crocodile hunt to find him and put him back in the book! Thank goodness for our littles who saved the "big kids" from the scary crocodile!!

And By The Way.....


Our preschoolers were not the only ones who went on a hunt ....Sophomore Nikki Sivak had to find the square duck hiding out in the library!
