    By now I'm sure you realized that Coolmath games is blocked at school (which is FINE with us!).  Here is where you can play chess with another player (each on your own computer).

  • Important! About Escape Rooms....

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 9/16/2017

    I have been informed that we cannot provide late buses to students who are staying after school for clubs or escape rooms.  I am so sorry!  I will be working toward finding a solution to this problem.  In the meantime, only students who have their own transportation home will be able to participate in after school library activities such as escape rooms, book clubs, library volunteer club, or special events.  Again, I apologize, and at the moment this is beyond my control.

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 9/11/2017

    6th Grade Only--Escape Room!

    Welcome to the Middle School, 6th Graders! 

    Our first Escape Room event will take place this Friday, September 15, in the library from 2:15 to 3:00 PM.  If you want to participate, come to the library to sign up, and you will need to have permission from your parent or guardian to stay after school (late busses are available).  Make sure you have your permission-to-stay-after-school note to the Main Office BEFORE you stay after! 

    On Friday morning, you will need to report to the library for your ticket to the escape room (VERY IMPORTANT!) 


    Hope to see you there!
