Students choose Young Adult books to read

As a library, we encourage all students to read. We try to have reading material that will appeal to all of our students. What may be appropriate for a 7th grader may not be appropriate for a 9th grader and vice versa. Be aware of what your student is reading. If you don't consider it appropriate for your student, simply have your student return the material or materials to the Media Center.

 

Microsoft Office Converter

If you have Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 and you install this converter on your computer, your student should be able to open the document he or she saved at school in Microsoft Office 2010.
