We're Back! - February version
This week has brought many reminders why we're all here - it's for the kids and all that they bring to our lives. These photos of two Kindergarten students with their "response to literature" pictures make me smile just to look at them. It can ban all those concerns about technology troubles, time constraints, and being pulled in too many directions - at least for a little while.
The mention of technology troubles came first because the last time I wrote a blog posting was back in November. I looked at the date today and realized the last posting was about a week before the big crash. When the district server went down, it meant we had no "OPAC", the online library programs that run our modern libraries. As many know, for over a month we were writing down barcodes to keep track of books. It was a day to celebrate when the Chariho Tech crew got us back and running right before the holiday vacation. We're still recuperating from losing all data between June and December 2011, but it could have been worse, and I'm thrilled to be back in normal routines.
So I hope this explains the lack of blogging and now I hope to get back to weekly postings.
If you're looking for something new to try for the beginning of February vacation, you might want to look at the link below for the Providence Children's Film Festival. It runs February 16-21 and features films, workshops and other famiy-friendly activities. The website has plenty of info regarding age suggestions for various films - have a look http://www.pcffri.org/
