Welcome to the Highlands Library Media Center (LMC).
Please help your child find time to read daily. Establishing a common time to read will help your child develop a good reading habit. Talk to your child often about reading and books. Read together. It is important for intellectual development, and it will be quality time spent together.
February Tumblebooks Calendar

February 1: National Wear Red Day
On February 1st, we wear RED... It's in honor of Heart Health.
Kelly LOVES the color red! In "Red is Best" let her tell you why it is simply the best!
February 29: Leap Day
Every four years, we add an extra day to the end of February and call it "Leap Day".
It's because a year isn't exactly 365 days! It's actually closer to 365.25 days!
So in a sense, we "bank" that 0.25 day every year for four years, and at the end, we "spend" it all on Leap Day!
As a special treat, we're including a free trial to TumbleMath so you can check out the book "Days, Weeks, and Months" to learn more about how a calendar works.
Digital Citizenship is very important in today's technology-rich environment. Help your child navigate the world of internet access and social media safely and responsibly.
Click here to see digital citizenship lessons by grade level: www.comonsense.org
I use the comonsense.org website (above) and teach lessons to students.
A fun introductory activity is to take an internet safety quiz. This quiz will help you see where your child stands. Younger students will need help. Grades 3-6 should be able to take the quiz independently. Use the quiz as a springboard for productive conversations about digital citizenship. At the end of the quiz you will be taken to the safekids.com website, where you can find other resources.
