Author Stacy McAnulty to visit Phillips Wednesday, May 2nd!
Stacy McAnulty will be speaking to Phillips 6th and 7th graders on Wednesday, May 2nd during 5th period about her new middle grade novel, The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl.
From the publisher:
Jeghetto, aka Tarish Pipkins, visited Phillips Middle on March 16th!
The 8th grade Phillips Falcons were so lucky to welcome Tarish Pipkins and his Frederick Douglass puppet to our school. Reading from the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Tarish helped us to celebrate the bicentennial of Douglass' birth. Thank you to the Chapel Hill Public Library, the Town of Chapel Hill and Tarish Pipkins for making this happen!
Our Library Mission:
To empower students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and effective navigators of information and technology. This is supported by:
The library is open Monday - Friday during school hours. Students are welcome to come check out books, use our computers, or create and collaborate when the library is open. Students can come to the library any time during the day with a signed pass from a staff member.
Students may check out up to 10 items at a time. Check out is for 3 weeks, but students may renew items unless there is a hold. Students can also request a hold for a book with the library staff. Although there are no overdue fees, students will be restricted to check out more materials if they have overdue items. Students are asked to see their librarian about lost / damaged books. Refunds are not honored after the school year is over, or if the book has already been replaced.
