    Peace Day. Students holding peace books

    Our students learned about International Day of Peace on September 21st, created by the United Nations as a day of non-violence around the world. Students wore shirts that represent peace and read peace books found in our library.

  • Dot Day

    Students holding their Dots

    Librarian's in front of dots


    We celebrated International Dot day in the library by giving students the opportunity to 'make their mark' by creating their own dots that we put on display in the hallway! 

    The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.

    We read the book and discussed how we can encourage each other the way the characters in the book did; and then we all loved wearing dots to school to celebrate!

  • South Carolina Day and Discus

    Students are sitting near their SC float projects

    Students from Ms. Hernandez's classes learned to use Discus to research South Carolina ahead of South Carolina Day. Using the information found from the many resources available in Discus, the students created South Carolina Day floats from shoe boxes. The students presented their finished projects in the library, and they are amazing! The projects are on display in the library and available to view through September 5th. We are so proud of our scholars!

Mrs. Kristen DeAnne Anderson, School Librarian

My name is Kristen DeAnne Anderson, and I am your school librarian. I am married with three children ages 15, 9, and 3, and I love reading (obviously!), spending time with family and friends, and traveling. I have always loved journeying into the new worlds that books can take us to, and that is what led me to want to become a school librarian. I attended the Master of Library and Information Science program at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!), and I am beyond thrilled to be here to help you navigate all our library has to offer. Please contact me with comments or questions anytime!

Hello friends,

I'm Ms. Sims, your friendly, neighborhood Library Assistant.  I have a ten-year old daughter, Alyssa, and a fur baby named Callie (p.s. she's my dog).  When I actually have free time, I enjoy reading (of course), knitting, and listening to music.  Some of my favorite things are fluffy pyjamas, Squishables, and dark chocolate candy.  I'm excited about all the wondrous reading adventures we'll have.
