What a wonderful treat we had today! A Leslie alumna came to school and played a concert for the students! She is a professional and has been all over the world and came to talk to the students about community and each of us and the part we play in that. It was amazing. She had two friends along, and they did a great set where they showed how each instrument (viola, violin and cello) had their own part to play in a song, even though they are all different. I could have stayed and working in the library, but I wasn't about to miss out on this concert! And she's playing at the Elsinore Saturday night and if you are a student and bring ID, you can get in for free! Amazing! So periods were shorter today, but I still got workbooks covered (another 15 or so) and put out the books I had repaired the day before yesterday. I had two Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and were able to send them out to students on the hold list! Yeah! Got to spend time with students helping them pick out a just right book and I love to do that! Repaired a couple of other books to let sit for the night and read another graphic type novel (Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf) and found gum stuck inside. I carefully scraped off the gum and tried to save the other side of the page stuck on the other side and managed to save part of it. I ended up putting our book tape over where the gum had been, three sides! Two for the glue and then on the page behind where the gum had really stuck. Helped some students log in to the school computers today so they could get on our Chrome books. Laminated a bunch of tiny strips of science stuff for Mr. H.
