Library Aides Program Results

The Library Aide program generates scholarly students who demonstrate honorability, organizational skills, and wisdom on a daily basis. These character traits are important to becoming a library aide. I am please to announce the students who stayed 3 hours after school training, wrote an essay during their free time, and missed a lunch recess to come to the library to take the Library Aides test and made the top scores of 85% or higher.

The qualifications are the same as a classroom volunteer by registering online and submitting a current negative TB test to Sandy Studer in the office.


If you are interested in helping our library, please contact Ms. McCormick at (949) 515-6975 Ext. 7496 or e-mail her at cmccormick@nmusd.us.

Back to School AGAIN!

Welcome Back!


I am so excited for you to visit the library and see all the changes I made! I moved the cataloging computers, teacher table, curriculum lab is now in here and we have magazines, too!


The staff and I are looking forward to teaching you and making sure you are well provided for and taken care of for the next 10 months!




Ms. McCormick

"Whatever Floats Your Boat!"

Our new theme means that whatever you like, READ ALL ABOUT IT!


Our focus will be on reading nonfiction books that interest you. These types are books are the ones that make you smarter, gives you new ideas, and teaches you critical thinking. With the new Common Core being taught, we must learn to be critical thinkers and I am here to help foster that learning in each of our students.


Tuesday is the most exciting day of the whole year!


Embrace and enjoy the new year!

Book Damage

Students are taught to choose books that are a good fit for their age and reading level. We teach them proper book etiquette and to be responsible for the books they borrow from the school library. In addition, we teach students to be book inspectors to prevent any student from taking home a damaged book. The rule is that they show and tell us immediately so that the book can be repaired or replaced. No student should have to have substandard books to read.


Occasionally, we will get a student who turns in a damaged book and claims they didn't do anything to the book. We often hear, "it was like that when I checked it out." Going back to the rule, students need to return the damaged book immediately after finding the damage. They should not wait until their next classroom library visit.


If you have any questions or concerns about books, please feel free to contact the library.

***Quick Note

To help stop the spread of germs and decreasing illnesses, please use disinfectant wipes to clean library books your child(ren) brings home. You may use antibacterial wipes or spray a paper towel with disinfectant then wipe down both covers of the books.

Thank you!

We clean books everyday, but with your help, we can limit the amount of shared germs.
