Algonquin Middle School Media Center
A BIG THANK YOU to all who visited our Fall Scholastic Book Fair. The fair was a success! The media center was able to add over $600.00 worth of books to our collection plus earned almost $400.00 dollars to spend on books and other supplies. A very special thanks goes out to the following volunteers who donated their time and talents to our fair: Alicia Potter, Laura Cardamone, Christine Riehl, Jill Garrity, Victoria Lester, Lisa Thomas, Krysta Byers, Jill Barton, Christine Paul, Kathy Tomison, Shelly Eddins, Renee Cannon, Jill Teper and Rowena Filary. The media center also hosted a successful bagel sale the week of book fair. A special thanks to Mrs. Janusch, Mrs. Vecchio and Mrs. Childress for helping with the bagel sale. Thanks to all those families that attended our book fair during Parent/Teacher conferences. Please remember to keep sending in your Box Tops For Education box tops, your used printer cartridges and Campbell’s Soup labels; these are on-going media center fundraisers. Looking for opportunities to help out at school? Look no further. The media center is always in need of parent volunteers. Please email or call Mrs. Catennacci at SCatennacci@cvs.k12.mi.us or 586-723-3522.
As part of our efforts to care for the environment and support our green school status, we will again be participating in the Cartridges for Kids program during the 2015 - 2016 school years. As a reminder, Cartridges for Kids collects un-damaged laser and inkjet printer cartridges as well as unbroken cell phones, working GPS devices, laptops, PDA's and iPods. If you have been wondering what to do with those replaced cell phones, or other listed items, please send them to the media center with your student (for complete list of items, please log on to www.cartridgesforkids.com.) Labels for Education and Box Tops for education are also ongoing fund raisers for the media center (for a complete product list, please visit www.labelsforeducation.com or www.boxtops4education.com/AboutBoxTops/Products.aspx.) A container is located in the media center for collection, so have your student drop your box tops, labels, ink cartridges, and old cell phones off in the collection box. Thank you for your continued support! Want to stay connected to your child's school? Ever thought of helping out in your child's school but didn't know where help was needed? Well look for further! There are plenty of opportunities in the media center. If you are interested in helping, please fill out the volunteer form in your parent packet, or email me at SCatennacci@cvs.k12.mi.us or call 723-3522.
