Finished my last working day yesterday. Circulated 57,700 items this school a 4 - 6 grade school with about 1300 student population.

WOW, we were busy. Along with 62 biweekly scheduled classes and over 7000 dropin computer users, and 63,000 plus Accelerated Reader points.

Here is a list of our top 5 circulated titles

Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space

Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toliets

I really want to think that I promote good literature and thoughtful reading...but kids are kids.

Grits Slide Show

To salute that wonderful lunchroom staff I mentioned in the last post, I developed a slide show for them. We presented it in the lunchroom on Thursday morning (the last day for cheese grits this year). Wanted to share it with you all.

Last Day for Cheese Grits

Our lunchroom fixes the absolute best cheese grits every Thursday for breakfast. You will see teachers walking down the hall with a styrofoam bowl and a plastic spoon eating their grits before school starts. For 75 cents we get a great southern breakfast. When the May menu was posted this week next Thursday, May 15, read LAST DAY FOR CHEESE GRITS. This is my salute to our lunch room ladies and their fantasitc cheese grits!
