The AAJHS Library host its second AAJHS Lego Club on March 7th. Our next club meeting will be April 4th from 3:00-4:00 in the library. You can sign up to attend March 26-April 3. Come flex your engineering muscles and get creative with Legos!
On Friday, April 13th, the library transformed into a museum to participate in International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Seventh grade students visited throughout the day to experience survivor stories, view artifacts, learn about the events before, during , and after WWII, and watch a documentary on the survivors and liberators. This is the third year our library has honored this day and the effects are always lasting upon the students.
Mrs. Piper's 9th graders designed, engineered, and built chairs completely out of cardboard! Our readers are enjoying sitting on them with their favorite book. Mr. Santone and Mr. Caminiti took a break on them as well.
Thanks to an AASD Foundation Grant, Mr. Davis's 8th grade Western Industrial class "visited" Historic Cold Spring Village in Cape May, NJ. They experienced Mr. Jim Stephen's program "Past vs. Present" using the PolyCom Videoconference system in the library. This program looks at everyday items and discusses its 1800s equivalency.
This virtual field trip will be taken every marking period this year. In this photo, we learned about the abacus and how it was used. Now, it is the calculator and cell phone that do this job!
Each month, the library will select a library patron to feature as its Spotlight Reader.
This student will be featured on the library bulletin board, on the AAJHS listserv, and in an episode of Junior Paw Productions.
We’re proud of our library patrons!
Our Spotlight Reader for April is 8th grader, Harley S. Harley comes to the library every day after lunch. She enjoys reading science fiction because it talks about space and she loves space. If she ever writes a story herself, it will be a book about a girl who is trapped in her dream and can’t get out. Her own writing reflects her love for science fiction.
Other than reading, Harley enjoys singing. Her advice to struggling readers is if you don’t understand something in a book, reread the part you’re struggling with.
Come check out our amazing science fiction selection in the AAJHS Library!
