Library Club

If you are interested in joining the Library Club this year, please come to an important meeting at lunch on Tuesday, Sept. 15, in the Library Learning Commons. You may bring your lunch as we will be starting at 11:45. Library Club members are extremely important in that they help keep the Library Learning Commons organized and tidy, and they also help students with checking out books and other materials.

If you are interested in being a member of the club this year, make sure you come to the meeting!

Mrs. Montroy

Welcome Back!!

A big welcome back to all staff and students in the Gladstone School Community! We are in the process of getting the Library Learning Commons up and running, however you can come in and check out a book anytime. Silent Reading starts on Monday, so if you don’t have a book yet please come in and see what we have.

Also, we would like to welcome Ms. Chiang as our new full-time Teacher Librarian. Welcome Ms. Chiang!!

We also have a new printer, however it is not set up with Papercut yet. Until it is, we will be asking you to pay for paper ($0.10 per page copied). You will need to find either Ms. Chiang or Mrs. Montroy to get help with this as we will give you the paper after you have paid. We hope to have the system up and running quickly!

Hope to see you all soon 🙂

Board ‘Til 4 is back!!

Need something fun to do after school on Wednesdays? Do you enjoy playing board games?

Well we have the answer. Every Wednesday, after school until around 4:00, we will be hosting Board ‘Til 4 in the Library Learning Commons. Come on out and meet new people and choose from a fantastic collection of new and old games from Checkers to Settlers of Catan.

The first Board ‘Til 4 will be on October 22. Hope to see you there!
