On Thursday, March 7th 25 middle school blind daters enjoyed a pizza party in the library, a reward for reading and reviewing their blind dates. Lots of pizza, munchies, and cookies were gobbled up! We also had a record 32 US students participate in blind date this year, with Jack Griffiths being the lucky winner of the gift card drawing for dinner and a movie. We hope you all enjoyed your blind dates!
On Valentine's Day in the library, about 150 students chose blind dates! Will it be love at first sight, or only a one night stand? We'll find out when they post reviews of their dates - stay tuned!
Last Friday Mrs. Swi transformed the library into a Winter Reading Land! Her classes spent the day reading and sharing favorite stories from their childhood, and choosing books for pleasure reading over the holiday break. Mrs. Swi and Mrs. Slowinski made some recommendations, and we even had some upper school students visit and talk about their favorite books.
Music, hot chocolate, snacks, and comfy pillows completed the atmosphere! Happy reading to all!!
We have a new mascot in the library, courtesy of Mr. Payne's Aquariums and Terrariums club. She is a leopard gecko, native to the dry and rocky terrain of Pakistan, India, and Afghanistan. We hope she will be very happy in the library!
But - she needs a name! If you have any suggestions, especially if they have some connection to a book (title, author, character?), stop in the library or add a comment to this post.
On Friday April 27th during 8th period, the Paulus Library hosted our first ever Pun-Off!! Organized by junior Cindy Zhang, we invited students and staff to come trade punny quips. There was lots of food, much groaning laughter, and all punners received an EGGcellence in punning award. Many TANKS to all who came and participated!
Members of the US Science Honor Society are celebrating Earth Day in the library today! Their projects are on display, and students are making presentations all day long in the media center. Stop by and learn how YOU can help save our environment!
