The American Library Association announced the 2021 Youth Media Awards this past Monday 25 January. It's an outstanding list of award winners. We have some of these titles and honored books already in our library, and the rest of them are on our big annual order that arrives each August.
Of particular interest to parents might be the Alex Awards, which are one of the ALA categories. These are books published for an adult audience but that are of particular interest to teens. I often find these to be outstanding reads, particularly for book clubs or for parents and teens to read together.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
Parent Information Sessions
Here are the upcoming sessions – all parents are welcome and encouraged to attend:
