Library News

All Freshmen English classes have completed a two-week unit on doing research at a high school level this year.  Then they returned to their classrooms to write their research paper. They should be able to tell you about books and databases they used, how to evaluate websites using the acronym C.A.R.D.S, how to cite and annotate their sources in an MLA formatted bibliography and how to avoid plagiarism. They work hard on this big project and deserve a pat on the back or a high five when completed!

Please encourage your student turn in any library books and textbook so they will be available for others.  Also, check Skyward to see if they have any fines for library or textbooks.  Contact the library at 596-8038 with any questions in regards to fines for books.  Thanks for your help!
