Thanks for Supporting Our Spring Scholastic Book Fair!
The Spring Scholastic Book Fair at Speas Global ES was March 11 - 15, 2019. Family Night was Wednesday, March 13, 5:00 - 6:30 for families to come and visit that night, along with a PTA Uniform Exchange and Sale in the cafeteria. Thanks to our PTA and all our great volunteers for helping at the book fair, and to all the families who supported out Book Fair. With your support, we will be able to add lots of new books to the library!
Welcome to the Media Center!!!
Our library has a Global theme! Check out the flag display from around the world!
We are very busy in our media center. We are excited about our designation as a Global Network School and our selection as an IB candidate school (International Baccalaureate - Primary Years Programme), and we strive to promote that image in our media center as well! We have a SMART System (interactive board) and we are having fun using it for many activities in the library. We frequently explore the world in the media center, and we are having fun using our SMART Board with Google Earth to "travel" around the world! We are also able to schedule class research time on the computer "hub" with 10 computers, many of which will be the new Chromebooks. We also have flexible "Open Checkout" time to make the library more accessible, with expanded flexible library times and early morning checkout during the breakfast time. The library is open Monday through Friday from 7:25 am until the end of the school day. Please let me know if you would like to recommend a particular book or author for our collection.
All schools in the county are on the Destiny computerized library system. This enables all schools in our county system to share information with each other, and it also has some great search capabilities. Best of all, the database is available online from any location with an internet connection, which enables our students to find, not only the books in the media center, but also all those great Destiny WebPath Express website sources from home, too.
Do you have a book to recommend?
We try to add new books each year based on what our readers like to read! If you have a suggestion for a new title, or popular author or series, please click on the following link to let us know! Thanks!
