Second Semester Begins.....

We made it through mid-terms and are now off and running into second semester. With no major storms in sight (this time last year we had the first of many major storms and were under three feet of snow) and a January/February thaw on the horizon I think we are all getting excited for the spring!!

New classes are beginning, year long classes are moving forward and students and staff are ready for the long stretch!! The library has been busy with students and prepping for the 3rd term English research projects for each grade. The library will be teeming with students elbow deep in the research process!!

Midterm Week

"Don't study until you get it right, study until you can't get it wrong"


The library was a busy place this week as students studied and prepped for midterms. While many students used the library for studying and collaborating with peers, just as many were in here to relax, grab a book and take some time to hang out with friends before or after their exams. It was a nice mix of studying and relaxing and just how we want the library to be used by our school community! 

We are looking forward to starting off Semester 2 with a bang! As I write this we are gearing up for the annual Chemistry research project and English classes across the grades will begin their term three research project. The library will be so busy and exciting!

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."-MLK
 As we move into the long weekend to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr's life and legacy we should keep in mind his teachings and what the day truly stands for. Instead of looking at Monday as a day off, those that want to celebrate MLK see it as a day ON! A day where we give back to our community and others and work towards making our small slice of this world a better place. Natick has a celebration at Wilson Middle School at 11 and many organizations throughout the Commonwealth have service days and projects people can become involved in. If you can not make it to any service opportunities at least take the time to appreciate what we have.
