Room 5 is adjusting our library schedule slightly to help accommodate access to the library and computer lab for state testing for Clear Lake’s 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Students in the intermediate grades will complete a series of Language Arts, Math and Science tests this spring, all of which are done on the computer. To do this, they will need a quiet work environment. Since our lab and library are connected, classes are not able to utilize the library during testing sessions. One of the sessions is schedule for our regular library time, so we are adjusting to a morning slot to make the lab available.
For us, though, this means a change in when we need to bring in library books. Normally, we bring them in on Friday mornings to turn in. However, our new library time will occur right when the students come into class at 9:05am. Mrs. Brown will need time to check in books beforehand, so I am asking that students now return their books one day earlier–on Thursday. This will allow Mrs. Brown the time to check in books and have checkout materials prepared for our new Friday slot. This new schedule will remain in force for the rest of the school year. If you have any questions, feel free to call or email Mrs. Cox.
