It’s that time of year — all library books will soon be due back to the library so that we can get ready for summer loans!

Tuesday, June 6, is the deadline to return all borrowed materials to the MS/HS Library. Circulation will then be closed until June 12 when we will begin to make summer loans.

This year, all rising 6th to 12th grade students and their parents will be able to borrow up to 10 books for the summer. Please return a signed copy of the summer loan agreement when you come to make your summer loans.

Please note, only re-registered families may make summer loans. All materials borrowed for the summer will be due back to the library during the first week of school in September.

Not sure of which books you want to read this summer? Check out the summer reading list for your grade and our online catalog (parents, click on the ‘Explore’ button to browse our special collections of Christian reading materials).

The content on  WhatWasThere.com is crowdsourced. Anyone can contribute historical photos to the database by uploading their old photos and placing them at addresses found on Google Maps. The mission of the site’s creator, Enlighten Ventures, is to “weave together a photographic history of the world” for users to explore.

To use the site, simply type in the name of a state, city, or local address and begin examining photos in the collection.

Teachers! WhatWasThere.com encourages historical thinking as students experience the history of places they are studying in a new way–by examining places, people, and events from a complex, multifaceted perspective.

Our 5th grade Spanish students have been busy with their country reports! The students each selected a Spanish-speaking country, researched it, and wrote a formal report. Next, they created a digital poster, using Glogster, highlighting their favorite things about their country.
