The Media Center at Sequoia High School

Welcome to the Media Center at Sequoia High School.

What's happening in the library?

We'd like to keep our collection current for the kids!

Look for thematic tables each season.

Goals for this year:

  1. Add novels to support ELD and emergent readers
  2. Increase selection of fiction
  3. Make space!
  4. Cull and organize textbook room (Go team!)

From a teacher:

It would be fantastic if the library were to develop a collection of books for emergent readers. Target audience: ELD 1, 2 (and some ELD 3), students with special education designations AND reading disability (not all students with sped. designations need specialized books), students who were in SDC classes before, and students in the System 44 classes.
  • Assess the collection
  • Weed the collection
  • Supplement collection
Students are engaging with novels beyond their required reading. We've started a "bookworm" incentive to have kids write reviews to generate interest.
"It feels like a book store!"

Thank you for considering our mini-grants:

  1. Books to Film collection (see Movie Posters)
  2. Audio/E-book subscriptions (plus readers)
  3. Book talks/author invites/speakers

We hope to add other elements for a vibrant , creative space such as sound booths for listening to audiobooks and podcasts, and more individual mobile workspaces.

Wishlist items:

  • Headphones + splitter
  • Microphone headsets
  • Tablets
  • Booth
We hope to embrace history by beginning an archive with the alumni association:
  • Professional scanner
  • Archiving materials
Ms. Schadler has been at Sequoia High School for 4 years as the library technician. Need to find a book? She can help! Ms. Schadler knows this library catalogue inside and out. Her favorite book right now is Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family attending the theater, the movies (especially when she's already read the novel) and sporting events.

Ms. Snow recently transferred from Menlo-Atherton where she taught Digital Photography and Journalism. She missed teaching English and talking about books, so her transition to Media Specialist makes perfect sense. In addition to her Art/English credential, Ms. Snow holds a CTE credential for her work as a photographer. She looks forward to infusing my love for photography, journalism, English, technology, people (!), and storytelling into as many different channels as she can.
