Diane Shore’s author visit was a success. She spoke to all grade-levels
and sold over fifty copies of her books, as well as handed out order forms
to all teachers.
The 900 section of the collection was weeded. Over thirty texts were
taken out of the collection due to publication date, damage, bias, and
content not aligning to the Georgia Performance Standards.
A book order of $600 was placed for the 900 section to replenish the
books that were weeded and fill in gaps found in the curriculum after a
review of the Georgia Performance Standards.
Fulfilled a number of teacher requests including:
o Books containing folk tales
o Revolutionary War resources
o CRCT instructional/practice materials and resources
Assisted all grade levels with signing up their classes for a free trial on the
IXL math website.
Distributed a reference wiki to grades 3-5 to act as a reference
supplement for teachers and students.
Began re-modeling the media center website to include highlights from the
2009-2010 school year, as well as overall updated information.

achievement of all students.
Implement several professional development units to teach how to use
and create wiki’s within the classroom as an instructional and resource
Re-arrange the non-fiction section to make it more user friendly for all
