Star Valley High School Library

Life is an adventure.
Sometimes it's fun, sometimes a challenge and sometimes a downright trudge.  At the SVMS library, we try to make a difference in the lives of our students by creating a space where students come to engage with the adventure of learning.  We do this by offering new challenges and programs designed to create a love of learning.  We like to see ourselves as the testing zone for any kind of new and exciting educational experience.
Right now, during COVID-19, even though you can't be in the library, you can still go on an adventure inside the pages of a book!

Defined Learning: Project-based Learning

We have been piloting this program, in the library for the past 2 months, it is fantastic.  It is a Project-based teaching platform that is easy to use and has all the resources attached.  If our "social distancing" ends up taking longer than expected, this may be a great tool to use.  All projects are STEM related and allow a student to see a problem through a career-type lens.

Shakespeare in the park...or library?

Mrs. Call's 12th grade English classes decided to grapple with the text of Shakespeare in a very hands-on way.  By splitting each English class into two book-clubs, one club studying Macbeth and the other Twelfth Night, she was able to give students the opportunity to experience more. With smaller groups and the help of the librarians she, Mrs. Osmond and Mrs. Suloff helped Shakespeare come to life.

Who knew 12th graders could talk Shakespeare?

I have been working at the High School Library for 7 years.  I love the books and love the students even more. My favorite things to do are; going camping, reading, (especially while camping), and crocheting.  I love to tole paint and craft. I am a big fan of Star Valley Sports. Most of my time is spent with my grandchildren. They keep me young.
