We have “dipped our toe” in the Makerspace waters in the past with a coloring station and origami crowns during prom season but we are going to hit it full force this year with bags made from t-shirts and duct tape wallets and pencil toppers. Students stay tuned for more details and to when and where.
Inquiry and classic literature lead to cool presentations and displays.
Recently I read an article in VOYA about a new category of YA called Bizarro. As stated in the article, it is “best defined as weird”. Tomsu writes, “it is a format that encompasses many genres, including absurdity, fantasy, science fiction, and horror”. After reading this article, I purchased several titles for the PDHS library and have received a positive response from those who have read them. The titles we have are: Billy and the Clonesaurus, Quicksand House, Project Nemesis, Hissers, Jurassic Dead and Little Dead Man. If you are interested, stop by the library and pick up a title.
