fundingfactoryDid you get some new gadgets for Christmas?  If so, gather together your old cell phones and cartridges and bring them to the basketball games during the next couple of weeks.  There will be a clearly marked box near the door for you to deposit your items.  All of the money we raise will be used for books and e-books in our high school library.  Thank-you for your help.

Snapshot 2012 is a record of what happens during a typical day at the library.  Sometimes we forget about the wealth of resources right here in our school community and our local library.  Our K-12 students have an excellent library of books to enjoy, our high school students have access to free e-books and audiobooks both through the website and through the Maine InfoNet Library link.  Everyone has access to MARVEL, a huge resource including dictionaries, encyclopedias, newspapers, journals and magazines online.  Are these new to you?  Check them out!

A froncommonsensepage article on the BDN today along with a video brings home the devastating effects of online bullying.  An additional article asks parents to check for signs of cyberbullying.  A federal mandate passed in July has made it mandatory for K-12 students to receive lessons on digital citizenship and digital literacy.  Our teachers are using Common Sense Media, a link under resources on our website.  In addition to offering excellent lessons, this site provides a tool for parents to use when selecting books and media for their children.  It also provides advice we can use when talking to our children about social media.  The site does an excellent job in presenting to parents, educators, and students the role of a digital citizen.  Today, living in a powerful online world has many opportunities and challenges.  Responsible use can lead to so many rewarding experiences.
