I work for a non-profit agency (CIEE) who matches exchange students with host families. We are currently looking for families in the NoVa area. Host families provide three meals a day, a bed, transportation, and love and support. Students have their own spending money and health insurance. We have students from around the world whose dream is to come to the US. Therese from Norway is in need of a host family for the 2019/20 school year. "My name is Therese. I am a sixteen years old girl from one of the world’s most northern cities. I was born and raised in a small town with 10 000 citizens.. I would consider myself as an outgoing girl. I chose the United States because I find it to be a very interesting country. The U.S has a lot to offer and I am so excited you cannot even imagine. Throughout my childhood, I have tried out many different sports. Swimming, horse riding, gymnastics, skiing and soccer. My family has influenced me and made me attract towards music. My biggest influences is my father and my cousin , she can sing, play piano and guitar. When we celebrate Christmas, for example we often perform songs for the rest of the family." Hosts provide a bed, 3 meals a day, and your kindness and support. Message me for more info on hosting Therese. https://www.ciee.org/partner/hosts/host-families Olof from Sweden needs a host family for the 2019/20 school year. “Dear future host family, My most characteristic personal traits are that I am ambitious, social and active. I love spending time with family and friends and therefore the social relationships are very important to me. Since I value studying and school very high I take my education seriously and I often work late nights with home work and assignments for school. In the future my biggest goal is to go to Medical school and become a doctor. Besides this, my favorite hobbies is to train (either by going to the gym, jogging or playing soccer for the soccer team I am captain for) reading and doing fun activities with both my family and my friends. Examples of these kind of activities are going to the cinema, playing cards, hiking or going to the beach. As I mentioned earlier, family plays a huge part in my life and especially my two sisters mean a lot to me. Therefore I hope that I will become close to you guys and that you will be like a real family to me. I also enjoy cooking and I hope that I can contribute at your house by cooking traditional Swedish food such as swedish meatballs.” Hosts provide a bed, 3 meals a day, and your kindness and support. Message me for more info on hosting Olof.

The library is open 8:15 til 4:45 Monday through Thursday and 8:15 til 4:45 on Fridays.

Our librarians are Mrs. Channing and Mrs. Donahue. Mrs. Silvernail is our library assistant.

How to design a library that makes kids want to read

Came across this today. Rather timely considering the proposed changes for our school. Also nice to see we were doing this years ago with our student-led intiative to update our space. How important our SCA, PTSO, LEF, along with local businesses like Ashburn Huntington Learning Center and Chick-Fil-A @ GW, were to our small changes, our own Robin Hoods. And, of course, the support of our supervisor, Elissa Moritz.

The Snowy Day Read-aloud, an animated story

Who remembers this book from childhood? Students? Parents?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=FmZCQfeWjeQ&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1iDrNU5hSjl1A0gcFcHC7n2bltmNLKM###Ti4qiOGsFcIJ_qV3oOvxycI

Ezra Jack Keats's classic story, with animation by Jay Boucher and narration and sound by Napoleon Maddox.

So when we made progress with our “update the library” plans a few years ago, we wrote an article that was published in School Library Journal about how we did it. Our student volunteer board, we called them TAG for Library Teen Advisory Group, did so much work to give our space the teen-focused makeover we needed. After the article appeared, we were interviewed by Diane Tuccillo, who was updating her book on the subject of teen advisory groups in public and school libraries. We just got the copy of her book and she features our school in several places.

Thanks again to our SCA, our PTSO and the Loudoun Education Foundation. Your grants and support helped us do that important work! Thanks also do everyone who donated items and participated in our fundraisers.

Here are a few “action” shots of the book. 😄
