    Week of May 21, 2018 | Ballard High School Library is nurturing the reading lives of our busy students! We are all about emphasizing the functional and social value of reading.

    Nature Poem Book Club StudentsWe held a Nature Poem Book Club by Tommy Pico with UW MLIS intern, Ryan Gelsky and talked about identity and storytelling.

    Students have been encouraged to follow their passions and learn more about 3D printing on by joining the 3D Printing Committee and reading about this disruptive Library 3D Printertechnology.

    Beaver Readers Summer Reading list comes out next week and we encourage all student to return overdue books (especially seniors for graduation) to find digital and audiobooks that feed their soul.

    We are holding digital and face-to-face book clubs over the summer with The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander and Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.

    Follow us on Twitter @BeaverReaders to find out dates and locations. Remember in the words of Frank Serafini, " There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book."

    The Ballard High School library is in transformation mode!
    We have replaced the carpet, worked on connectivity and electricity, and we are now designing the space. We have been working with Shelly Stock of Stock & Associates and we are getting student feedLibrary Furniture Catalogsback on furniture, color swatches, and what makes the space more functional for learning. Students are trying out different configurations and giving feedback on furniture and interior design. As we take this time for rest and relaxation over break, students are encouraged to read as much as possible.

    #WhatAreYouReading- this is the question every person connected to Ballard High School should be discussing. We believe that the fastest way to connect with people and positively change the world is to discuss the books and stories that matter to us most. If you need any ideas for books to read or purchase please go to our Amazon or Queen Anne Book Company Wishlists.

    We Won! Beaver Community!

    I am thrilled to announce that we won the $100,000 grant award from Farmer's Insurance! The award was unveiled at a faux assembly for 9th graders at the end of the school day today where Ms. Chambers was surprised by her family, district officials and representatives from Farmer's Insurance.  View Video!

    Structural work will take place and equipment will be received sometime in 2018 and we anticipate the Learning Commons being 100% transformed by the start of the 2019-20 school year.

    Thank you to every one who voted! Our community is the best and it is so, so clear that it is Always Great to be a Beaver!!   Keven Wynkoop
