Game On!!

The last full week of school before Thanksgiving Break has been busy! Ell classes debating the role social media plays in our lives, preschoolers story time, lots of study hall students diving into second term, we have barely had time to come up for air!

We look at the library as the hub of our school community and we are always trying to find ways to bring our community together! With the pep rally coming up we decided to bring out the school spirit of our faculty and staff! Teachers brought in their old sports and club jackets and jerseys and they are currently on display in the library. Representing some of the many towns our faculty/staff come from, the display has been a HUGE hit with students and staff alike! Students have been taking pictures with the jackets, have laughed at some of the styles and have had a great time trying to figure out who the jackets belong to! This has been one of our favorite displays to date, and all we can say is wait until prom season!!!

Thank You Veterans

It was a short week with Veteran's Day on Wednesday and a half day on Thursday. We wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of our veterans who make it possible for us to live in our community!

As the second term gets under way the library continues to be a busy place! We love seeing some of our favorite students enjoying their time with us!

Look What's Pulling in to Preschool?!!

It has been quite a week! The term ends today and students have been working hard in the library to make sure they are all caught up with assignments. It has been very busy and I think we are all adjusting to daylight savings as well. It is hard to believe it is already November and only three weeks until we are out for Thanksgiving Break.

In order to celebrate our Native American heritage and culture that is so rich in Massachusetts and in particular Natick, we have created a display in the front windows.

The Library is mobile and is chugging into Preschool!! The last three years the high school library has had a wonderful partnership with preschool. Preschool classes come to the library once a week for story time. Students are read two books, learn about the library and begin a curriculum about authors, illustrators and genres of books. Over the years we have built and continue to build an extensive collection for our preschoolers, preschool teachers and high school students who take the child development classes. With so many rich books we would like to see in our youngest students hands, Ms. Williams proposed a traveling library to preschool. The brainstorm resulted in our "Library Locomotive!" Every two weeks, Ms. Williams will be donning her conductor's hat and delivering stacks of library books to each preschool class. Students and teachers will be able to use the books in their classroom and have exposure to many more titles than what we can do during story time! We are so excited about this new endeavor and can't wait to see the preschoolers faces as we chug into preschool!
And who knows.....perhaps high school teachers will see it and will want a delivery of books to their classroom! We would love to do that as well!!!
