In October, Banks Middle School applied for a matching grant opportunity from Capstone Interactive Publishing. Mrs. Dillard is happy to announce Banks Middle School was awarded a $500.00 matching grant to DOUBLE to amount of interactive eBooks purchased by BMS. Give a big thanks and Banks shout out to Capstone Interactive Publishing! Thank you very much!!
These eBooks can be accessed from the Banks School Library Catalog (OPAC) and can be used on a variety of devices from a computer to a phone! They can even be used in the classrooms on interactive white boards. These books will make an excellent addition to the collection at Banks Middle School.
The Banks PTO hosted the annual Santa event at Banks Primary School on Saturday, December 6th from 10:00 - 12:00.
Santa visited with children, photos were taken, and it was a great start to the season. The Santa photos are linked below.
Thank you to all the parents who allowed their children to shop for family and friends at the Penguin Shop. The children loved having the ability to shop for parents without them knowing what they were buying for them. It really empowered the children and helped me understand a budget as well.
Thanks for another great year at the Holiday Shop!
