February - Deep Run Library

Feb. 3-7

Students took make up exams on Monday and were proctored in the library. The whole day was used for make up exams.
We worked with Mr. Dickey and his leadership classes on a project they will be doing to promote the library. They are working in two groups and will be in a competition "like the apprentice TV show". The librarians and administrators will be judging this project.

We worked with Mrs. Stockdale's classes to create digital  magazines that display the eras of the 1920's.
They will be working in groups and will chose from about 7-8 different scenarios that they will create their magazines about. Three of her classes will be coming in all week to work on their magazines.
