Wanted: Empty Shoe Boxes & Broken / Unwanted Toys

Nothing says change of season like a good closet cleaning. If you see one in your future, please consider donating your empty shoe boxes & broken or unwanted toys to the Media Center MakerSpace.
We are facilitating a MakerSpace – English Department Collaboration that requires 350 shoe boxes and buckets of broken / unwanted toy parts. We’d love to give you a place for all those one armed GI Joes, Happy Meal Toys and less than perfect Barbies.
If you are interested, you have to act fast. This opportunity will expire on 10/21/2016.

We’re Looking for a Few Serious Readers – Mock Printz Club Forming Now

We are looking for a small group of serious readers: Readers who can never get their hands on enough books; Readers who are committed to finishing books – even the ones they don’t love; Readers who are willing to read just about anything; Readers who can handle serious volume. Sound like you? Then you should join our Mock Printz Committee.

Each year the American Library Association presents The Michael L. Printz Award to a book “that exemplifies literary excellence in young adult literature”. Our Mock Printz Club reads, discusses and votes in advance of the January Announcement. We try to select the winner before the ALA does. Join us in reading some great books, engaging in great discussion, and participate in some intense voting. Interested? Please email Mrs. Cucchetti cucchetti_a2@ohlsd.org for more information or to join. Students, teachers, community members welcome.
