VIRTUAL BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

This years Battle of the Books was held virtually. There were about 140 students, 40 volunteers, and at one point, 36 Google Meetings running! Students were placed on teams, participated in a team building activity, then ventured in and out of Google Meet "stations" where they worked together to test their memory of books they read. They even had to go into a tie breaker during the Grand Battle.
A big shout out to Mrs. Bell and all the volunteers which included a crew of teachers, principals, administration, library technicians, librarians from the public library, retired teachers, and CAPS grant committee members. Thank you for making this a memorable BATTLE!

THANK YOU CAPS

The AHS LIT (Librarians in Training) Club would like to thank CAPS for their generous donation to their annual Barnes and Nobles Book Buy! Earlier this year, club members collaborated and researched new books to purchase for the AHS Library. Each student was given a portion of the budget to manage and, together, spent an afternoon shopping for books. We also stopped by the Atascadero Public Library for a behind the scenes tour. Thank you, CAPS, for supporting and funding this awesome opportunity! Books will be promoted and added to the library collection when we return to school.
