Thank You for Your Support

Great news! Both Donor Choose Grants have been fully funded through the generosity of Dollar General, the Dietel-O’Neill family, and some anonymous donors. These funds cover the cost of all the 45 books on the list for the Pennsylvania Young Readers’ Choice Award, a program where the students get to read kid-nominated books and vote for their favorite. The other grant, The Social Network, purchases Makerspace kits and board games to encourage social interaction at the lunch times after a year and a half of being apart. I am grateful for this generosity and know these materials make school a more enriching place for our students.

Printing

You can add the library printers to your Chromebook by following these steps:

  1. Go to the assignment you want to print. Select See More. . . from the dropdown print menu.
  2. Look at the bottom left-hand corner. Click Manage.
  3. Select Add Printer.
  4. Give the printer a name, then type this IPAddress:10.36.101.106 or 10.36.101.107.
  5. Return to the original assignment. Refresh the page.
  6. Go to the dropdown print menu and select See more. . . The name you gave the printer should appear.
    Pick up your items from the basket by the printers in the library lobby. They are disposed of  at the end of each week. If it was important enough to print out, it should be important enough to collect. Students coming to pick up papers will enter the library, take their papers and exit.
