Escape Room @ Cav Library

Freshmen Studies-classes explored Cav Library, discovering clues and entering digital kick codes to “escape the library” this week. Our record breakout: 24 minutes! The average escape time was 45 minutes. What a fun and engaging way to welcome our newest Cavaliers to the library!

VSBA Surprise Release

A student’s (hello, Kate) eagerness to read one of these titles, spurred me to go ahead and release the VSBA books to you! Come and get ’em! “How do I participate?,” you ask. Read 3. Complete the online Google forms linked under VSBA above. Vote. Eat pizza! Done! You can do this!

Blessings all,

Welcome Back, Cavaliers!

CCHS and Cav Library are thrilled to welcome one of the largest freshmen classes in our school’s history and our returning upper classmen! I am excited to meet each and every one of you and to help you meet your academic and social goals during your high school career! Our library is home to a generous collection of both fiction and nonfiction titles, computers, a LEGO wall, and Makerspace. I hope you will stop in before school and between classes to introduce yourself or to say hello again if you are a returning student. I can’t wait to see you! Oh, and don’t forget…YOU NEED A BOOK!

Blessings all,

Mrs. Nichols

Cav Library Hosts Book Tastings

Cav Library is excited to host daily book tastings during the month of January. Students visit the library and take their seats to a table featuring four fiction titles of various genres. Students “taste-test” the book by examining the front cover, previewing any cover summaries, and actually beginning to read the book. After four minutes with the title, students record what the book is about thus far, indicate on their menu if they would like to continue reading it in the future, and pass it to the right for the next student. All featured books are the menu are immediately available for checkout at the close of the meal. Our hope is that students might expand their literary palette by venturing outside of their normally preferred genres to devour these great books.

Blessings all,
