Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! If you are a freshman, you will learn about the VHS Media Center's resources and programs during orientation scheduled with your English teacher. If you are a returning or newly enrolled Buffalo, stop by the media center before or after school or during your lunch period to discover what's new this year!
I'm looking forward to my 8th year as the VHS media specialist and the changes this year offers. I spent several weeks this summer visiting family, friends, and former colleagues at my previous school. While their media center has undergone some wonderful renovations, your VHS Media Center is a beautiful facility that provides you with a wealth of resources, from print and e-books to databases that offer you 24/7 access to information to assist you with the year's research assignments and projects.
We have new hours, a new face, and new programs for you this year. Our doors open every day at 7 AM, and we offer an additional hour on Thursdays until 4:30 PM. Our new assistant, Mrs. Paddock, met several students during summer reading and will be helping students during the afternoons. This year's Florida Teens Read books look promising but will these new books be as popular as John Green's The Fault in Our Stars? We have new lunch time book chats and contests to test your knowledge of books, trivia and more, and our laptop lending program will benefit students who need computers for word processing at home.
