Summer Reading Sessions!


 Summer Reading!


One of the 11th/12th grade choices
Today we had some great group discussions for summer reading! Students had a choice between three books to read. Discussion groups were randomly assigned based on your book choice, and discussion leaders and assistants lead some great talks! Ms. Carrick is part of the Summer Reading Committee and was instrumental in choosing some great reads this year. Students seemed happy with the choices!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Library is in Full Swing!

We love how the library is used in so many different ways! Whether it is a class coming down for instruction and work time, teachers one on one conferencing or students working together, it is always an active place!!

 Working Hard!

Now that we have two weeks under our belts, studying is in full swing! Students are working hard in the library, studying, collaborating, relaxing and settling in! We are excited to work with all of our students this year! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Show Your Spirit!

This has been a week full of spirit! Seniors have been filling the hallways and classrooms with their enthusiasm. Each day was a different theme, "Red, White & Blue" "Beach/Summer" "Sports Teams" and ending today with a "Red Out" to celebrate tonight's football home opener!

WELCOME BACK!!

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” 

-William Butler Yeats

 

The library would like to welcome back all students and staff for another great year at Natick High School! We hope that everyone was able to relax, get outside, enjoy the beautiful weather and read a few books!!

This is a great time as the new year begins to sweep away any old baggage and start fresh! Clean off the desks, the shelves, and the mind, of negative thoughts and people who bring you down and hit the ground running, for a successful and happy year!

We look forward to teaching classes, recommending books, chatting with our students and working hard to make the library a vibrant hub of our community!

Have a great year!!!

"The Long and Winding Road"........

 FINALLY FINALS


It is hard to believe is the last full week of classes. As students prepare for finals and summer, you can feel a shift in the air. There is energy and excitement, a little nerves and a whole lot of happiness as summer approaches. It has helped that the weather has FINALLY turned more towards summer.
We want to wish all of our students the best of luck on their finals, hope everyone has an amazing summer, and has some great adventures.













Preschool Rocks!


This has been the last week of preschool classes. It has been such a pleasure watching my little preschoolers grow this year. Their love of life, enthusiasm, excitement for reading makes each day a happy one for me! There is nothing better than being able to teach the youngest and oldest students in our community!!!

Congratuations to our Graduates!!!

 Oh The Places You'll Go!


Today is the day our seniors have been working towards for the last four years! It has been a pleasure watching this class grow from nervous, excitable freshmen to confident strong seniors! One of the best parts of our job in the library is the ability to get to know and teach all of the students, so we really feel like we are sending off the whole senior class! Good Luck in all of your endeavors and we will be watching all of your amazing accomplishments!

Junior Book Awards

Congratulations to the juniors who received book awards Thursday. A breakfast ceremony was held in the library to honor our juniors who were recipients of the various awards. These students were thoughtful and articulate in their speeches. Proud of their accomplishments .


The Ones Who Paved the Way

As we move closer to graduation for the class of 2017, Ms. Williams decided to create a display to highlight past classes of Natick High. It is entertaining to watch students engrossed in the yearbooks from the past. Whether they are commenting on the wardrobe ("how could they wear that?!") the hairstyles, ("how could they wear that?!") or the events, ("they had what?!") they still saw the connection between their class and the ones who came before! 

Memorial Day

We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate and remember all those who have died while serving our country.

Reading is Alive and Well at NHS!

Who says students are not reading?!!

Only books left from donation!
Students poring over free books!
Having received a donation of five boxes of books, we decided to put the books out for students and staff to take. To say we were shocked at how quickly the books went is an understatement. Students were pouring over the books, taking many, and sharing which ones they thought looked interesting with their peers. It was exciting to see students enthusiastic about reading for the simple pleasure of reading!!!


Civil Rights In Action!

 
Ms. Hale's class is working on a Civil Rights Project. Really wanting to emphasis good research skills, students will be using books to locate and analyze information on their specific topics. While at first a little gun shy about the idea, students quickly appreciated the ease at which they could find information and break it down into their own ideas!
