September was a blur. Usually the first month of the school year moves slowly. Not this year....Homecoming 2017 fell on 9/22/2017...the third week (and only the second full week) of the school year. Throw in coaching Shumate Cross Country, running my own kids all over Downriver, and DJng a few gigs here or there September seemed to last about thirty-eight minutes. Oh wait, did I mention I had to keep up on all of my daily library duties as well?
So after over 900 Marauders enjoyed their homecoming dance on Saturday 9/23/17 (while it was 90 degrees by the way; where are all those stupid Al Gore jokes now?) I finally can get set with a somewhat normal writing and work schedule. October will see frequent updates and lots to share. Two big news items to kick off the month:
|You know, just enjoying a dance with 960 of my closest friends|
- Our Carlson High School Literacy Team held our first meeting today after school. We have a lot of great ideas planned in for the 2017 - 2018 school year to encourage literacy throughout the Gibraltar School District and improve services within the Carlson High School Library.
- I have been selected as a presenter at MAME Conference The Michigan Association of Media in Education is the state conference for school librarians. I am very excited to present about all of the exciting things going on at O.A. Carlson High School.
