Regarding Test Anxiety from Ms. Vinecour
I'd like the teachers to refer students to me who they feel have issues with test anxiety. They can identify students two ways:
1. Announce to their classes that if anyone feels anxious about taking tests to go speak with Ms. Vinecour. 2. Be mindful of students who avoid tests by being absent on test days or inventing reasons not to take exams, and submit their names to me.
Teen Read Week is coming! October 17-23
What is Teen Read Week? It is a time to remind teens the importance of reading for pleasure: it’s free, fun, and can be done anywhere!Research reveals that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to succeed in the workforce.
How will we celebrate it in the library? Each day during TRW there will be a different activity such as a word scramble, trivia question, and/or “guess this book” on the white board.You are welcome to come during your lunch, and fill out an answer ballot.I will list the first 5 winners the next day.The winners will receive a small prize.In addition, the library is hosting a 2nd Annual Design A Book Cover Contest. Book covers will be due the last day of Teen Read Week.See Ms. McRae for more details.
What kind of books should I read during Teen Read Week? The theme this year is Books with Beat.Read or listen to anything you think relates to music, or however you creatively interpret the theme.

"Here's how it works: public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class...Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school... You'll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $100, you'll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students. "
