Hello from the Learning Lab! 
My name is Amy Parkinson and I'm the new media tech (librarian) here at Fall River. I'm super excited to be here and am learning so much already!  I have 4 kids that are growing up way too fast, but they all attended Fall River...I love this school! 
We just started checking out books, and I love that the students are so excited about it!

Non-fiction relabeling, we are on our way!

Thank you to all of the helpers who have come to resticker our non-fictions books, all 4,901 of them!  We are making major progress.  The Learning Lab is a bit messy at the moment with relabeled books on top of shelves and to-be-labeled books in the shelves.

Claudia Mills is coming to visit on April 3rd.

Lexile Framework for Reading is a great program that connects students with books that are at their own appropriate reading level. To find out more about the books your student is interested in and whether they fit into their Lexile range go to
