Welcome to the Meridian Park Library for the 2020 - 2021 School Year!
Greetings Cheetah Families,
This is a quick note to say hello and welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year. While we are not together physically on campus, we are together in our common mission to make sure all Cheetahs have the best school year ever! Below is some basic information about library lessons, book check out, and technology resources.
As always, let me know if I can help you, answer questions, or point you in the right direction when I don't have the information you need.
~Jenny Hillger, MP Librarian
Things to Know:
The weekly kindergarten through third grade lessons focus on 2020 - 2021 Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award nominees.
The weekly fourth and fifth grade lessons focus on 2020 - 2021 Towner Award nominees. The Towner Award is given to honor books of informational text (nonfiction).
Elementary librarians chose these two award programs because they are high interest to all students, allow students to participate in state-wide literacy programs and vote for favorites in 2021, allow for a variety of student activities that work well in Seesaw, and fit well within a 30 minute video lesson format: 7 - 10 minutes of text and instruction, with time to complete activities.
Cheetah Curbside Check Out
I am super excited to announce… Meridian Park will have “Cheetah Check Out” - Curbside Library Book Pick Up program this year.
Phase One: Pilot Program - Late September
In late September, we will run a pilot program with a small group of students and families to test our process. We will notify Phase One families soon.
Phase Two: Full Cheetah Check Out Program for All K-5 Students
During phase two, we will implement a check out system for all students in grade level bands. I will share more information about this program with you in a few weeks.
I cannot wait to connect students with library books! (The books have been lonely!)
