  • They escaped!

    Posted by Julie Horwat at 5/18/2017

    This group of out-of-the-box thinkers solved all of the necessary puzzles to stop "the curse of the Mondays" by working together in a high-pressure situation.  Everyone contributed something; what a great team!

  • Learn how to get popular audioboks and ebooks onto your devices or PC!

    Posted by Julie Horwat at 5/5/2017

    Did you know that you could be listening to or reading some of the most popular YA titles right from your phone, tablet, or PC? Enjoying a book through Overdrive doesn't even require Wi-Fi or the use of your data. See Mrs. Horwat any chance you get (study hall, lunch, after school, before school, etc.) tol learn how to borrow ebooks and audiobooks right through the computer or your device.  If you have access to the internet on your device, come with the free app, Overdrive, already downloaded if you can (although this is not required).  You may wonder how you ever lived without Overdrive once you get started!

  • Robot Apocalypse!

    Posted by Julie Horwat at 3/1/2017

    Save us from the robot apocalypse!

    After school, Monday 3/6, a team of up to 10 students will need to work together to save the planet from the dreaded fate of robot world domination.  The robot plans to annihilate us by getting rid of all of our technology.  He only needs 40 minutes to do it.....unless we can foil his plans in time.  Sign up in the library Thursday or Friday to be allowed to participate.  It's a high-pressure, hands-on, brains-on, exciting event that will give you a rush of adrenaline and satisfaction afterwards if you are successful.  What can be more satisfying than saving the planet?  If you're into escape rooms and mystery rooms, this event is for YOU.
