Welcome back to school Grizzlies! Welcome to 2020! How crazy to think in a few short months we will be graduating our seniors! Tears of joy (and relief) shall be shed, no doubt. 


IB DP students: remember I am here to help you with your extended essay needs. You know I love doing research! Shoot me an email, come in and chat, I’m here to help. Remember to use the databases provided by the library for all your research needs - that’s why I provide them. Good, vetted, unbiased information is what every one of us needs. Make sure you are a thinking globally minded student.


Can’t forget that our common testing day for the ACT exam is coming up on Tuesday February 25th. You can take some practice ACT and SAT exams using the Gale Testing & Education Reference Center database, to compliment your CERT testing practice. Remember, your ACT score not only gets you into college, it can win you a lot of scholarship money. Y’all are a smart bunch, so go crush that test and win that money!


Right now I’m reading Alan Gratz’s Refugee, which ties together the stories of a Jewish boy from 1938, a Cuban girl from 1994, and a Syrian boy from 2015 who all flee from their homelands and embark on treacherous journeys towards freedom and safety. So far it’s an amazing read, but it’s demoralizing to realize that the human race still hasn’t learned how to not war. Maybe soon. On a completely different plane, I have Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff waiting for me to finish Refugee. Aurora Rising is set in space, and it looks super cool. If you read Kaufman and Kristoff's Illuminae Files series, this one looks similar. 


Grizzlies, let’s rock this second semester out! It’s going to fly by, so make sure you stay on top of your schoolwork. If you ever need any help, you know where to find me.
