Read Across America Sway

Hey Read Across America Readers!

I’m creating a Microsoft Sway featuring YOU! Students who participated in Read Across America are highlighted in the following Sway and have been given access to edit it. Access this Sway link. Then find the “card” with your picture, and do the following:

  1. Verify the spelling of your name.

  2. Verify the title(s) of the book(s) you read.

  3. Add authors to your book title(s).

  4. If you’d like . . . add a reflection about your experience, a quote from your book, or a quote about reading. You may add a text card or include the information you add on the same card where your photo is featured.

If you need help with any of the above, swing by the media center to see Mrs. Baker as your schedule permits.

Book Fair is Next Week!

It’s almost time for Durham Media Center’s annual Scholastic Book Fair! The book fair is the only fundraiser the media center hosts, and the earnings support 100% of the media center’s trivia prizes throughout the year including paperback books and posters awarded to this year’s Scholastic Summer Reading students who logged reading minutes over the summer and prizes for October’s “Spooky Books Trivia” winners. School supplies like pencils and fun, complimentary bookmarks offered throughout the year are also purchased with Scholastic credits as are much of the library’s displays, décor and signage. Device charging stations, the multimedia table, comfy student seating, and interlocking tables were all purchased with monies earned through the Scholastic Book Fair. Every penny of the proceeds benefits Durham students, so please consider shopping the Scholastic Book Fair March 4th through March 8th.

The Online Scholastic Book Fair is Now Open! Sunday, February 24th – Saturday, March 9th.
