Whew! ! Things have finally slowed down a bit in THS’s
Chester Woodward Library.
Chromebooks-- At this point, all students should be in possession of their Chromebooks. A little reminder that the warranty has expired on the devices and students will be expected to pay for any damage that occurs this year.
If the Chromebook has been lost, stolen or broken, the student should report it to the library.
PowerSchool--Students are expected to provide their student ID card when asking for their PowerSchool username and password. If a student is having trouble logging in to the site on their Chromebook, they should come to the library and see either Ms. Patrick or Mrs. Quirin for assistance.
Novell Log-ins--If students are unable to log in to the computer, we can provide assistance. Again, students need to provide their student ID’s.
Student ID’s--If students lose their ID cards, they should pay for the duplicate card in Rm 101, bring us the receipt and we will print them another one. Please remember that we cannot take money in the library. Students must first report to Rm 101 with $5.
Books? Yes, we are still in the business of providing research materials and pleasure reading books to students. A variety of new fiction and non-fiction books has already arrived. As always, encourage your students to put down the electronic devices and pick up a good book to read. It’s amazing how calming the art of reading can be for people.
One 2009 study by Sussex University researchers showed
that reading may reduce stress
by as much as 68 percent.
