Making connections with parents

I wish I could have made it to all three buildings Thursday night, but I love being able to talk to parents about the role of the library in the academic lives of their freshmen. I have known many of these students and parents since preschool days.

Welcome to Solon Community School District!

Dear new teachers,

When the New Teacher Institute time rolls around each year, I can't help thinking back to my first days at Solon Community School District. 

My brain was exploding! And you probably feel about the same way.

Don't worry. You'll get into the groove and things will start falling into place. The best part is that you have a terrific support system. 

You have your fabulous professional partners. 

You have the GWAEA induction coach, Heather Groh.

You have your building principal and Matt Townsley (who you have gotten to know well!)

And the entire SCSD community.

That includes Media Services. Yes, we are an important part of your support system!

We have so much more than books and "stuff". 

We are here to help you help students succeed. 

Never hesitate to call, email, chat, video conference or just stop by your building's media center. If we don't have the answer to your question, we will find it!
