    LIBRARY NEWS
* Textbook and Library Book Returns
 

All school library books are due Friday, May 20th, which is also the last open day for full library services.  Next week all textbooks will be collected.  Ask your history teacher which day is your turn-in day. Bring your textbooks in a bag with your name on it to your history class before school starts on your turn-in day.  Please do NOT bring your consumable workbooks that you write in, for either math or English.  Only return your hardcover textbooks and class novels.


If you do not return your borrowed school materials or pay lost and damaged book fines, you will not be able to participate in end of the year 7th Grade Team activities, Yearbook distribution, or the 8th Grade Barbecue, until you clear from the library’s Loss of Privileges (LOP) list.  Any indebtedness also carries over to the next school year, and you will be delayed at Summer Check-in this August.


And finally, please remember to write down all of your computer passwords for logging into Google and the desktop computers.  Passwords are NOT reset over the summer and will carry-over into next year.
