Use LINKS on left or TABS across top to access different RESOURCES for Shahala Eagles!


Our first few weeks of school are spent checking out chromebook computers to classes, having ORIENTATION visits & book check-outs for 6th Grade classes, and having  
Re-Orientation Lessons & book 
check-outs for 7th-8th.


The manager of Barnes & Noble and 
our own GUYbrarian Mr. Warner 
want to celebrate Shahala's return to school this week by having a

The store will have several books on SALE in a wide variety of genres, especially for middle school and teen readers, and offer teacher discounts too! In addition, any purchase for yourself in the store OR THE STARBUCKS CAFE WITHIN THE STORE, will also mean a donation from Barnes & Noble to our school library for new books and resources for kids and teachers! All you have to do is tell them you are from Shahala or show them the bookmark with our 
Barnes & Noble School Number 12430070 (see copy below).
Special guest author ETHAN SIEGEL will be there Thursday night with a presentation and his new book: "Treknology: The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive!" He recommends it especially for fans of sci-fi fantasy or for those who like to study REAL SCIENCE because it's about how science-fiction and real science connect!

Also, Shahala Middle School is starting a new SCI-FI FANTASY CLUB this year, run by advisors Jedi Warner and Hogwarts Professor Yurosko, and Barnes & Noble will have several books and some activities there to celebrate the start of our new club and have students sign-up!

6th Graders: The manager is planning to get extra copies of GHOST (Track #1) by Jason Reynolds to have there Thursday as well, in case any of you still need to purchase a copy of this 6th grade book for your Humanities classes.

This event is connected to Shahala, BUT the entire public is invited! So spread the word on social media to your family and friends so they can celebrate our return to school, celebrate reading, celebrate science & sci-fi, and support our school library at Barnes & Noble THIS THURSDAY September 13th!

Hope to see you there!

People Kill People by Ellen Hopkins

Ellen Hopkins

Crank author Ellen Hopkins tackles gun violence and white supremacy in her compelling and complex new novel, People Kill People (Margaret K. McElderry). A gun is sold in the classifieds after killing a spouse, bought by a teenager for needed protection. But who was it? Each has the incentive to pick up a gun, to fire it. Was it Rand or Cami, married teenagers with a young son? Was it Silas or Ashlyn, members of a white supremacist youth organization? Daniel, who fears retaliation because of his race, who possessively clings to Grace, the love of his life? Or Noelle, who lost everything after a devastating accident, and has sunk quietly into depression? One tense week brings all six people into close contact in a town wrought with political and personal tensions. Someone will fire. And someone will die. But who?
