Hello Sheridan Families
Welcome to the Media Center at Sheridan Arts. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Our students are continuing to learn about Internet safety. We now have 2 carts of (30) iPads for use in classrooms and for STMath. We are learning how to locate books in the library, both fiction and non-fiction. We are finding the books that are interesting to us and are at our "just right" reading level. This will increase student success at reading,
We will be sponsoring two Scholastic Book Fairs this year in December and May. Our December Book fair will be from December 9-13. Our online Book Fair will go from December 9-29. December 12 will be our Family Night. There will be a $50. drawing for books. The Scholastic BookFair $$ and donations will be used to purchase books for students, classrooms and the Media Center Library. If you have time to volunteer, let me know. We would love to have parents join us daily, as volunteers, helping in the Lab, checking out, shelving books and the many things that a busy Media Center has to do. Call Char at 612.668.1155, if you have some spare time to share.
