Welcome Back Teacher Newsletter

Have you ever tried superlame.com as a fun way to create comics out of your own pictures? I used it for the first time to create a teacher newsletter. I found pictures I had taken of teachers last year, and then used superlame to create 'comics' of them asking questions about the library. I used these 'comics' in my back-to-school teacher newsletter. Hopefully these are more interesting to read!



Welcome Back Teacher Goodie Bags

Welcome back Hillside teachers! Thanks to Amy King of Medford's Milton H. Allen School, I got the idea for teacher "welcome back" goodie bags! She got the idea from Buffy Hamilton, another amazing school librarian. It's just a little way to welcome everyone back to school and start the year off with a little fun.






Each bag contains:
library brochure
2 chocolates
fruit snacks
pack of tissues
pencil
tattoo (PebbleGo or 'Very Hungry Caterpillar')
front pocket with invitation to "BAM" Books and Munchies library book browse event in September
