Students worked alongside Mrs. Rodriguez and Mrs. Jandreau to complete a mural on the third floor of Silas Deane Middle School in 2016. Selected artwork from artists Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe, Wayne Thiebaud, Pablo Picasso, Katsushika Hokusai, and Andy Warhol were highlighted. Please click for more.
We are gearing up for summer break, and hope students can relax and enjoy the sunshine. We also want them to keep their minds active while they're away from the classroom. You may already know that we offer free digital books through OverDrive (http://wps.lib.overdrive.com), which provides 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student's mind than through reading? This summer, OverDrive is offering the OverDrive Summer Read program which is another way to keep students reading during summer break. A collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles are now available for multiple students to borrow beginning June 1 through 30. Please click the title for more.
On May 19, SDMS students Skyped with author Kwame Alexander after school in the SDMS Library Media Center. Students had an opportunity to ask Kwame questions about his book The Crossover, his latest release Booked, his writing process, and his work with LEAP for Ghana, an organization that he founded that has "provided literacy training for teachers, facilitated girls' empowerment workshops" and established a library that went from to 1 to 5,000 books! He also told students about his most influential college professor, poet Nikki Giovanni, dropped some hints about the prequel he's writing to The Crossover, and described the excitement and glamour of attending the Newbery Medal Award ceremony--the "Oscars" for writers!
