Hello AISD family! Great things are happening at AISD libraries!


First up are our excellent elementary students.  For the month of December 129,943 items were checked out by students!  Woo Hoo!  Let’s give a round of applause to the Brentwood Bulldogs and the Kiker Comets for leading the pack in checking out the most books per student.  Not far behind them were the Sanchez Aztecs, McBee Bumblebees and Ortega Superstars. 


Let’s move on to our marvelous middle school students.  For the month of December 12,961 items were checked out by students! Awesome!  The top middle schools for check outs were the Webb Wildcats, Murchison Matadors, and the O’Henry Mustangs.


We go now to our hardworking high school students.  For the month of December 3,391 items were checked out by the students!  Hooray!  Way to Garza Dragons, Bowie Bulldogs, and Anderson Trojans for leading in most checkouts by students. 


Congrats to ALC and Ann Richards Stars for being in a class of their own.  Their students are checking out a lot of library materials.
