New interns begin February, 2018.   We will put out applications when we return from holiday break. Students that have served in the fall may apply again.  They will have their own applications.  Jobs include:

  • Morning Interns: Arrive in the library no later than 7:30 AM
  • Class Interns: Work during your classes scheduled checkout time.


All interns are invited to stop by the Lindsey Commons on Wednesday, December 20th in the morning to get your winter treats!  We appreciate everything you do and would like send you home with a treat from our Make-Your-Own Trail Mix Bar and hot chocolate packets to go!  Please come before 11:00 that day!  Be prepared for warm hugs and well wishes!  See you in January!

She Died!

Poor Miss Floyd! In our discussion of historical fiction during one of our genrefication mini-lessons, we took a little trip back in time and played an online version of the original Oregon Trail.  Fifth grade teachers were on the wagon team going west. First, Mrs. Reid contracted measles. Then, Miss Floyd got sick with typhoid. As supplies ran down and water quality got worse and worse, everyone suffered. Just as Miss Floyd came to pick up her class, her virtual self died. We will mourn her passing, and so will she. ;0)

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!   😉
