Media Center Policies
During remote learning, the Northern Elementary School Media Center is offering curbside check-out on a daily basis from 9 am - 1:15 pm. Students may hold up to 2 books at a time. All holds must be placed by noon to be available for pick up the following day. This is a two-step process. First, please visit Destiny to place a book on hold; then fill out the Curbside Checkout Confirmation form to provide an email address for notificaiton that holds are ready. Click here to access a tutorial on how to place a hold. Click here to access the Curbside Check-out Confirmation form. I look forward to checking out some books and seeing you soon!
If your child is currently in-person at school, any holds placed will be delivered to the classroom by the following day, if available.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Fall Book Fair 2020
Our Fall Book Fair starts Friday, Nov. 20 through Dec. 4. We are working with Scuppernong Books in Greensboro to offer a combination virtual/in person fair. Use the link below to access the online store at Scuppernong. If you shop in person, please be COVID safe and practice the 3Ws. Only 10 shoppers are allowed in the store at one time.
Any item purchased through Scuppernong goes toward our total. You are not limited to what is in the Children's Department. If you are shopping online and don't see an item you want, try using the search bar to see if what you want is available through the store.
All shoppers will receive a virtual homework pass and have their names entered for prizes (courtesy of our Nighthawk Dads). If you shop online, your name is automatically entered; if you shop at the store, send me your name by messaging me in Canvas or through my GCS email (email@example.com). Use the hashtag #ishoppedthefair2020 in your message.
Thank you so much for your support!
