LCPS Book bus begins on Monday 9/21st! 📚 📖
New Book Services to Begin Monday
Students across Loudoun County will have two new ways to access high-quality learning resources starting Monday, Sept. 21.
The Media Services office has announced that students may check out library books to support their distance learning in one of two ways.
First, elementary students may visit the “book bus” on Mondays. During Mondays, the buses that currently deliver meals to communities across the school division will also deliver books to students who have requested them. Students may visit their respective school websites to access an online form for making the request. Students may determine the bus stop nearest their home by accessing this map (https://lcps.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=e2ed2993097b41fd9af0e44df83e3903).
As for returning those books, students can return them to a box at the back of the bus when they have finished reading them. Supervisor Elissa Moritz explained that, per the recommendations of the Realm Project (Reopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums), books will be quarantined for 72 hours before they are returned to circulation for another student to check out. Students will have longer checkout periods and can check out larger numbers of books than in the past.
Second, at the secondary level, students also may access an online form to request materials from their school library. Secondary students may use a “concierge” pickup service by scheduling an appointment to drive by the school. Those unable to visit the school for pickups may also utilize the “book bus” service.
Librarians and library assistants will staff the “book bus” and provide the “concierge” pickup service.
The “book bus” program is a collaborative effort, bringing together resources from the Department of Instruction, the Planning Department and the Transportation Department.
We will never forget! 🇺🇸
Have a great school year Coyotes!! 💙💛
Welcome to RLC Ms. Riaz!! Go Coyotes!!
LCPS will be profiling some of our new teachers – in their own words – as we get ready for the new school year.
My name is Mariyah Riaz, and I am an LCPS graduate (Heritage High School), Roar Pride! I am honored to be working in the same county from which I graduated. In 2019, I graduated with my undergraduate degree from George Mason University, earning a bachelor of science degree in Psychology. I am now thrilled to be earning my master’s degree in Special Education from George Mason University as well. In addition to being passionate about education, in 2019 I earned my certification in Applied Behavior Analysis and became a Registered Behavior Technician. Being an RBT has changed my perspective in so many ways. It has taught me to be creative, patient, hard-working, supportive and being flexible overall. I truly enjoy what I do, and I can't wait to make a difference in a student's life. It is a privilege to be working at Rosa Lee Carter Elementary School.
Reason why I wanted to become a teacher:
My brother has had a heart transplant and, shortly after his transplant, he suffered a stroke. The stroke affected him developmentally, which caused him to need Special Education services. When I entered college, I did not know what I wanted to do. Never did I think that the answer to all my questions was right in front of me; my brother. I saw how much of an impact his teachers had on him, and I wanted to make that same difference in another student’s life. My brother is the reason that I want to be a teacher.
What I am looking most forward to in the next school year:
What I am quickly starting to learn over the summer is that they do not teach you how to run the show in school! All the things you learned while in school are much different than what you learn from your colleagues and all those around you. I am most excited to be meeting all my students and to learn from them. I know this is not the year that any of us expected, however, for now, it is the new "normal." As educators, we need to be flexible and work with what we have.
What innovative things will I be doing in a virtual environment:
I have many ideas in my head about all the different kinds of things that I want to use in the virtual environment. Physical activity and movement are very important to me: therefore I will be incorporating a lot of movement within my lessons. For example, in one of my professional development trainings, I saw an example with three answer choices with dance move gifs above them on a presentation. The students would choose their answers and, based on the dance move above the answer choice, that is the dance they would do. Another idea I would incorporate in my virtual classroom is the use of a custom cursor on my computer. I could use this as a positive reinforcement strategy. For example, if a student finishes all their work on one day, they get to choose which cursor I use the next day. I am so excited.
