Library News


We are very excited to announce the 2012 Read around the World Readathon!  It will run for six weeks starting this Monday, January the 23rd and ending March 4th.  Top readers from each class will win a $20 Chapters Gift Card.  Everyone who reads the minimum number of minutes for the entire six weeks AND writes one review and posts it on Destiny Quest will be entered into the Grand Prize draws – Two Kobo Touch e-readers will be given away!

All of the details and forms can be found here at this link.  


Our Ning information is now on our website under Social Networking and Ning rules.  Check out some of the forums, and start your own forum.  This is a great place for parents to post information, or ask a question.    Don't forget our awesome social networking seminar on January 25 at 3.45.  An Elluminate reminder will be sent out next week.   Let us know if you need an invite to the ning,  or contact your support teacher for an invite.  


Our Flat Stanley launches on our website this week, and Steve Cox is launching with campus teachers this week.   We are very excited as to how this might bless our younger readers, from both virtual and physical commons!  The HCS campus teachers hope to share some of their student's learning with us and get the ball rolling.  Check it out here and let us know if you have any questions!  We look forward to seeing your students connect with the Flat Stanley community.
