Physics Phun

Thanks to the Amazing Ms. Myers, the library had a fun and interactive physics display in January.  Students were able to read and check out books on physics, and then see how physics was applied to real life by playing with some physics related toys!  This month we will be doing a winter related display with a snowflake making station!  Stay tuned!

Cookie or Cream?

One of the big advertisements during Sunday's Super Bowl took place in a library, and involved a fight over Oreo's.  If you haven't seen the video, you can see it below.  But it leaves the question, which do YOU prefer?  The cookie?  Or the Cream?  For today only, you can vote at the left here.  Results will be announced Tuesday!

Second in the District!

Congratulations to Birch, Tony, Trevor and Braun who finished second in the district.  They were beaten in the narrowest of margins by Rilke Schule in an extremely exciting and nail-bitingly close match!  Since our team is all 7th graders, they vow to read up and come back next year stronger than ever.  Good luck guys, you read and fought really hard!
