And We Already Have Some Million Word Readers!

Hey kids!  We already have two students that have reached One Million Words in AR!  How excellent is that!  Congrats to these two fifth grade readers-

  1. Adelyn H.
  2. Sophia W.

They have read books and successfully taken AR tests on chapter books.  We love that they are challenging themselves with good books!  These students all have between 500,000 and 999,000 words.  We expect them to go over the One Million mark very soon!

  • Donaca T.
  • Sydney M.
  • Will M.
  • Lauren K. (our top Summer Reader for 2017!)

Reese F.,  Daniel D., and Ethan P. keep up the hard work!  You aren’t very far behind half a million!

If we have more readers move towards making One Million Words, maybe we should set up a challenge!  Stay tuned!   😉

Caution!

As we move books off the shelves and put genre sets back up, look for the yellow caution tape. Don’t take books off these shelves until we have had a chance to change them in the catalog. Then they’ll be ready for you!

The Digital Bookmobile

All aboard at the Switzer Library! We visited the Digital Bookmobile from Overdrive today in preparation for our push into the use of virtual libraries. We learned how to download the Libby app by OverDrive and log in with our Cobb County Public Library card number. Then, we got to browse and check out electronic books and audiobooks! We did all of this to get ready for our mass push to BYOD. We want to get you on the network at school and teach you how to use our campus ebooks and free community resources. We are very excited! If you don’t have a Cobb library card, no worries! Pretty soon you won’t need to have a library card to use the public library online resources! Your student number will be your P.A.S.S. to tons of digital materials provided by our amazing local library!
