Mrs. Mary Kate Witry
Welcome to the Robert A. Black Magnet Media Center
This is an exciting year in our Media Centers. In September, we celebrated to opening of our new Media Center in the Lower Level at the Branch. In November, we are introducing our Young Adult section in the Main Library. Books in this area are available for check out to students in grades 7 and 8 only.
Our school has been the recipient of a First Books grant! This means that new, free books will be distributed to students during the course of the school year. These books are completely free and the students may keep them for their home library.
Students come to the Media Center for classes once or twice per week. Students in grades 1-8 earn a report card grade for Library Science. Written assignments are completed in class and for homework. Please note that late assignments will no longer be accepted in library class.
Grades 4 - 8/ Quarter Overview: We have started Quarter 4 studying the graphic novel and the comic in Library class. Students will be creating their own graphic novel/comic- style autobiographies for their first exam over the next two class periods in library.
