Molokai’s Book Break
Molokai High and Molokai Middle School staff enjoyed the annual Library Book Break during the teacher workday on Monday, Jan. 3. This event supports the school’s literacy plan to systemically build and sustain a culture of high literacy expectations. New books, DVDs and Playaways (digital audiobooks) were arranged by curriculum subjects and genres for easy browsing. Participants vied to be the first to reserve and borrow titles for their personal and instructional use. One instructor said they “love opportunities like this where I get a chance to collaborate with colleagues about what I plan to do this quarter.” Others added: “Fun, food – who could ask for more!” and “Great event! So much to choose from – thanks!” Congratulations to the lucky number winners: Tori Maliu, Karen Harada, Laura Buller, Paula Friel and Iolani Kuoha.
