What does your Digital Footprint look like?Now that our children are using more technology at home and in school, we continue to educate them on the importance of using it properly. We will address Digital Citizenship throughout the school year. Cyberbullying, social networking, computer use, and cell phone safety are a few of the subjects we are covering. Feel free to contact your teacher or me if you would like to learn more.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning. Head to your local Library, sign up for your own Library card and let the fun and learning begin!
Every school year, Northwood's Library opens up to our students and staff. We offer a wide variety of books to enhance literacy, providing a wealth of information, as well as offering a large inventory with many genres to spark up even the most reluctant of readers.
During library time, your child will not only listen to great stories, but will have an opportunity to participate in literary discussions. They will listen to book reviews on old favorites and brand new titles just being released. They will also learn how to access information, be able to find these resources, and understand just how important the library can be in helping them to become successful in school.
Our goal is to provide our students with a great library experience. We want our students to know that the library is a place where they can find the resources they need to assist them with their studies, learn something new about the world and people around them, and to inspire in them, a "Love of Reading."
