2020 - 2021 First Semester Schedule

Bell Parade
Curbside Book Checkout is Now Happening at Bell!

This semester is very different than past years in the Media Center. Due to the change in the school model, my role has temporarily changed as well.

Technology Support
If you are having laptop or iPad problems, you can call me at "HelpDesk Light" where I am a first step in troubleshooting for technology issues. You can call the main Bell number (828) 298-3789 and ask for me or my extension 6040. My office hours are 7:30 am until 3:30 pm.  

Library Book Checkout
The Media Center is offering curbside book checkout for all Remote Only Plan C students. You can come to Bell every Wednesday from 11:00 - 12:00 or 2:00 - 3:00 pm to select and checkout out library books right from your car outside the main doors in front of the school. We will have books for all grade levels from Kindergarten to 5th grade to choose from. You can also put books on hold in the Destiny Library Catalog and we will have them ready for you to pick up during the curbside checkout times. 

Class Instruction
I am participating in K - 5 classes via Zoom to share books and library lessons on a flexible schedule for both remote only and in school students. 

Ms. Russell's Kindergarten class will have weekly library check-out and bi-weekly library lessons from the classroom for both Cohorts A and B.

There are opportunities for all students, both Plans B and C, to check out books on the Sora Digital Library and the Buncombe County Digital Library online via Clever from your IAM NCEdCloud Dashboard. I will be sharing how to access the digital books during library lessons. If you need help, you can contact me directly by phone or email.

I look forward to seeing you in the Media Center when it is safe to gather there again!
