LIBRARY READING DAY - MONDAY, 12/17

Hello all!

We would like to offer your students the opportunity to come study in the library on Monday, 12/17!  In preparation for finals, we wanted to make the library a silent study space.

Any interested student needs to get a pass from the library staff which will require your signature of approval.  On Monday, students will check in with you for attendance, and then they report to the library to read, review, and prepare for finals.

We will also have cocoa, tea, and coffee while supplies last--feel free to stop by as well!  We have limited space each hour so please encourage your students to get a pass from us as soon as possible.  We will not be accepting other passes on Monday to ensure the library will be a silent place to study on that day.

We look forward to Reading Day on Monday, and we would appreciate your help in promoting this opportunity to students who want a quiet, focused workspace to study (Library Reading Day.pdf).

Thank you,

Jane, Nicci and Robin

FINALS TUTORING BY NHS - Week of 12/10
Good afternoon, 

NHS students have generously set aside time next week after school to offer help to those in need of assistance in one or more subject areas.   There will be tables labeled for core and elective subjects to provide assistance.

All students that feel they might benefit from peer tutoring should go to the library any day after school next week (with the exception of Friday as the library is hosting a fun finals prep session that day).  

My classroom (220) will be the venue for Friday, December 14th, and the library will again on Monday, December 17th.  

Thank you!!

Sincerely, Mr. Brian Fish, NHS Sponsor​
