Check the Tag ProjectWhat a great week of teaching with the freshmen Global Awareness classes. Mr. Russo and Ms. Hale's Check the Tag project challenges students to look at a clothing brand and determine the company's philosophy and practice regarding social/environmental/civic responsibility. This is one of my favorite projects to work on with the freshmen!

Sassy is Here!Sassy has arrived at Natick High. While she is still in training she will be coming to school a few days a week as part of her training regimen. She was here for an hour today and the students were overjoyed to see Sassy!
Overheard in the library!
"This is my therapy!"
"I have homework to do but this just made my day and now I can actually do my work!"
"Oh my I am SO happy she is here!"
"This is the best thing to happen at school!"
Banned Book Week!
From the American Library Association: "Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular."
Check out our very cool display in honor of Banned Book Week and check out a book!!

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

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!

“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!!!
