MACHS Library would like to thank the following teachers for visiting our BOGO Book Fair: Ms. Alonzo, Mr. Bailey, Ms. Burton, Ms. Candelas, Mr. Holderness, Ms. Lu, Ms. Vandermeer, and Ms. Wiley. Thank you for helping MACHS Library's efforts to support literacy among our students.
Now that the majority of our students have activated their LAUSD Gmail account, teachers can start to take advantage of the many educational tools provided by Google. MACHS students have been using Google Drive to type papers, store research, and collaborate with peers. MACHS teachers are developing lessons with the help of Google Classroom and creating self-grading tests with Google Docs. Best of all, students now can organize their academic life with the LAUSD Gmail account, keeping everything that is school-related in one place.
Community Outreach, Public Relations, and Displays:
On December 15, MACHS took 31 of our most promising female students to attend Girls Build Leadership Summit, an event that brought together 10,000 female students from 200 schools and 70 school districts around California. From successful athletes and entrepreneurs to political powerhouses Senator Kamala Harris and Secretary Hillary Clinton, young women spent a day in the presence of strong, fierce women whose lives are an inspiration to the female leaders of tomorrow.
Read more about the event here and here.
The BOGO Book Fair was a success! The main goal of our book fairs is to allow students access to interesting, affordable books so that they may build a personal library and develop literacy skills. Many students took advantage of the buy one get one free deal and left with 2, 4, sometimes 6 books. We will have our BOGO Spring Book Fair in March-April.

Girls Build Leadership Summit
Library Practice students played an essential part in setting up, running, and breaking down the book fair. Students had the opportunity to develop customer service skills as they offered book suggestions and helped organize and promote the fair.
We will continue with Unit 2, the Non-Fiction Collection, as the new year begins.
We are still waiting on the December order to be delivered, but that does not mean that we cannot start preparing for our next book order. If you have any suggestions, or if you know students who love to read and would like to make a suggestion, please contact the library.
