The SoPrep’s Battle of the Books Team has been meeting in the library during Monday’s lunch period. If you would still like to join, just show up at this time! We have been having a blast getting to know each other and the twelve books that are in this year’s high school competition. Dates are Feb. 2,2016 for the district competition and Feb. 22, 2016 for the state competition! Go SoPrep!! Check out the book trailers and author info here: Author info and book trailers. There is a book for every genre lover. Also go to my quizlet site Quizlet and race against the clock to learn which author goes with which book.
May we all spend some time over the Thanksgiving break being thankful for all the blessings that we have. Everyday is a gift full of blessings if we just take a moment to notice them. Use your break to take some time to notice, spend time with loved ones and read a good book just for fun. Hope everyone has a great break!
The first ever Soldotna Prep Book Fair was held the week of conferences! With both students and parents shopping the selection, we were able to earn $484.92 in Scholastic Books and the bake sale earned $129 that will be used to purchase books from the ever growing students and staff requested list. A huge thank you goes out to the awesome volunteers who made this all possible. Thank you Melissa Bever, Michaleen Gross, Mickey Sopkowiak, Eva Knutson, Cleta Elfritz, Cyndy Denna, and Drasanna Edelman!! Happy Reading!
We have rearranged to make more room for you! Come in and see how every computer station is now in the middle of the room. No more facing the wall! Twenty-six computers are available for full classes, lunch time media fixes, or individual online classes. The table area is roomier and can be arrange in many ways to seat a full class of thirty plus people or even two smaller groups or lunch time hangouts. All the book shelves are now spaced throughout the room, giving more space to move between the stacks. And the most exciting part is now we have a smart board that every computer station and table can easily view. Come check it all out and check a book out too!

All during this season of being thankful the ‘Give Thanks’ tree will be displayed behind the circulation desk. Leaves, markers and tape are on the circulation desk for you to write what you are thankful for. We all have things, events, and people that have made a positive impact on our lives this year, no matter how ‘bad’ of a year we have had. You may use as many leaves as you wish to make our tree full of thankful leaves. THANKS and Happy Thanksgiving.
