    S.T.E.A.M. Fair

    The library is a fabulous place to get some ideas for the upcoming district wide K-8 S.T.E.A.M. Fair, which will be held on Thursday, January 26th from 6:00-7:00. Books are being displayed on the topics of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Technology, all of the elements of our upcoming fair. Additionally, our media center subscribes to a variety of databases to inspire students to read up on each of these topics and explore ideas to present at the fair. Each homeroom has been given forms to register for this exciting event. It should be a fabulous evening!

  • World Read Aloud Day 2016

    Posted by EDNA AUERFELD on 2/24/2016

    Greenwood Lake Middle School students enjoyed today's World Read Aloud Day events. Starting with a presentation given by students from each grade level, reading was celebrated. Excerpts from books and poems were shared and characteristics were defined that grow inside of us as we read. Students then read aloud together in the gym and cafeteria. Parents came in to read aloud to 4th and 5th graders, upper level students read in content areas, and a costume contest was judged by the 8th grade student government. Congratulations to Bradley Burakowski, Astrid Kelly, Brooke Barkin, and Ms. Prall!

  • Author Visit

    Posted by EDNA AUERFELD on 1/14/2016

    A BIG thank you to the GWL PTSA for hosting our author visit this week! Our 4th & 5th graders were excited to meet author Ginjer L. Clarke in person and take part in her informative presentation. Ms. Clarke shared the process of how a book is made from inspiration to publication. Students were taken through the writing process and then created their own stories. Our author was a fun storyteller and an inspiring source for future reading and writing! Earlier in the week, students had written questions they would like to ask the author. Several students had the opportunity to ask their question to our author at the culmination of the event. After the presentation, Ginjer L. Clarke stayed to sign books purchased and won by our students. It was a memorable afternoon!
