    RE:    Solar Eclipse

    Dear Parents/Guardians: 

    On Monday August 21st 2017 there will be a solar eclipse.  School will be in session on this day; however excused absences will be allowable if parents choose to keep their students home because of the eclipse.  For parents wishing to send their child to school we are making plans to accommodate.  During the time of the eclipse, from 10:15 to 1:15, we will have our window shades down, keep our students inside, provide lunch after the eclipse and provide a quiet atmosphere.  If you have questions and concerns you may call at (505) 721-4900.  Thank you for your support!      

    Sincerely,

     Anthony E. Morrison

Use of the Library

  1. The library is open daily from Monday thru Friday at 7:30 am – 3:10 pm.
  2. A student is entitled to borrow 3-5 books at a time. All books are checked out for one week except for reference books which are to be read or used inside the library only.
  3. Fines are not charged for overdue books, but the students are not allowed to check out books until the overdue book/s have been returned or paid for if lost or misplaced. A student may check out again some books when his/her record has been cleared.
  4. The books in Tohatchi Middle School Library are shelved by type of collection (General Collection, Native American, Fiction, Biography, and Reference) and are arranged based on the Dewey Decimal Classification System. Destiny Library Catalog provides access to the library collection’s author, title, subject, and call number. Books are checked out using the Destiny Library System.
  5. Students are welcome to visit the library and use its resources before school or during lunchtime without a pass. During class time, individual student or group of students (maximum of 5) with an official library pass may use the resources in the library for academic purposes only.  Library passes should be signed by the teacher and the teacher should indicate the assignments and a time to return to the class.  Library passes should be issued for 15-30 minute visits at a time.  Each teacher is limited to sending 5 students on one library pass each period.  If more than 5 students from one class is necessary, the teacher should schedule the library for that period and come to the library with his/her whole class.  Scheduled classes will receive preference over walk-in patrons regarding the use of the resources and space.

 

Accelerated Reader

(Please click this link to access AR.)

In support to the reading program of our school, the library is helping teachers and administrators promote reading through Accelerated Reader to improve the students’ reading comprehension skills.

 Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor students’ independent reading practice. A student picks a book based on his/her reading level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, student takes a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that a student understood what was read.  The program keeps track of all the tests taken and points earned for each participating student. The multiple choice tests are made up of 5, 10, or 20 comprehension and recall questions. After completing the test, the student is shown how many questions were answered correctly. The program shows the answers for the questions missed and awards reading points to the student’s record.

 Teachers and librarians help students choose books at an appropriate readability level that are challenging without being frustrating, ensuring that students can pass the quiz and experience success.
