Prize raffle for students ‘caught reading’

Stack of gold-colored slips of paper with a castle-style logo for 'SRCSA Literacy Week 2018.' Printing on the slips of paper state, 'You've Been Caught Reading! Enter this ticket in the raffle at our Book Fair Feb. 26-March 2nd.'

Compounding the excitement of officially starting work as Library Technician at my school, on Friday I handed out my first raffle ticket to a student whom I “caught reading!”

The raffle tickets are a promotion for “Literacy Week” at Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts. The tickets were distributed to school staff on Friday, so we could start giving them to students. With each raffle ticket that a student receives, the student can enter a prize drawing.

“Literacy Week” will take place this year from Feb. 26 to March 2. I’m looking forward to supporting a Scholastic Book Fair in the library among “Literacy Week” activities.

Student IDs access public library resources

Intriguing news in the latest eBulletin from Santa Rosa City Schools: Effective March 5, all SRCS students will be able to use their student ID number in the Sonoma County Library system to check out books and access online materials.

Art reproductions in SRCSA Library

Wooden framework that supports a collection of printed art reproductions that have been stood upright. The image on the first art reproduction in the set, depicts a beach scene with sand and rocky hill in foreground with cloudy sky above, and a strip of water in the background.

“At Santa Rosa Charter School For The Arts, students benefit from an arts-integrated curriculum.” (SRCSA website). In my role as caretaker of educational resources, I’m responsible for art reproductions in SRCSA Library. The collection reflects a variety of styles, historic periods, and media, and several of the pieces in our collection are supported by teacher’s guides. I hope this collection will be a valuable asset to arts integration in the classroom.
