It’s another year of learning and literacy at the SES Media Center! Once again, we will be offering regular classes addressing our students literacy and information literacy needs. We have a new face in the Media Center: Sonia Torres is our new Media Paraprofessional. She joins us from Harmony Leland, and she will be providing instruction as well, especially for those students in the dual-immersion program.
Soon, we will start our Million Minute Challenge again! Our students are challenged to read for 1,000,000 minutes outside of school this year. We are hoping that we will meet our goal even earlier this year, and we are working hard with the PTA to secure great prizes for our readers.
We are offering parent volunteer training to teach volunteers how to use the teacher workroom equipment (e.g., the laminating machine, the electronic die-cut, the poster maker, and the new copier). Our first offering with be Friday, August 4th at 8:00 and 10:00. We plan to repeat the same training on the first Friday of each month at 8:00. Our schedule may be altered by DEAL Clubs, so I’ll post an official schedule soon.
Speaking of volunteering, we would love to have some volunteers in the Media Center this year! If you’re interested, please let me know.
