Back to School Surprise!

Today I went back into school to start setting up the library and computer lab.  My first instinct was to turn on an iMac and stream some music.  Since the iMac was on, why not print everything I created this summer.  70+printed pages later, I of course need to laminate.  Up the hall, pages laminated, conversations had with other teachers, I came back into the library and see two boxes behind my circulation counter.  How could I have missed them? Two, amazing boxes, two great surprises to come back to school to.

Box/Surprise 1:

The graduating 8th grade class purchased and gifted a box full of books to the library.  New Books!

Box Surprise 2:

Last year I had requested 7 Nooks.  Four would have lower leveled readers and three would have chapter books for the third and fourth graders.  Although I heard I was approved for my purchase, when the end of the year came and I had not seen the Nooks, I assumed I would try again this year.  But wait... no... box number 2 had 7 Nooks and some beautiful covers to distinguish between the different levels. Now to teach the kids proper use and care before I let them take them home.


  1. What a great back to school surprise! I would have flipped over the first box. At the second screams of joy would have been heard all over the school grounds. Mrs. Brown Loves Bookworms
