Tea Parties and the Library

I have a tradition in the library. It started with selection of the head student library proctors. I love having tea parties and the library assistant and I jointly run the library proctor program. At the end of the year we take the heads out for lunch. We thought it would be nice to take the girls out for tea. So a tradition was started. We went to the Royal Tea Room and had a delightful time. So every year we went to the Royal Tea Room and barring only one year, it was a pretty good run.

This year, we had to pick another place as one of our girls was going to Italy and we had to go to tea this Memorial day weekend. The Royal was closed! Another tea room filled in nicely.

This year our heads have come up with the brilliant idea to have a student library proctor retreat and do our training at the retreat. We will be teaching them about the library, playing games, but also having them make video book reviews to post on Destiny, learning glogster to make posters for the monthly displays and they will be choosing their charity, which will determine who they raise money for during the year.

We've got a great group of kids and quite a lot of them. So I expect a lot of videos, reviews, promotions, etc. from this creative group. It should be a great year!
