Palm Beach County School District has purchased access to a new online library service for all Palm Beach County School District students, so that students can enjoy reading all summer long. To access the online library, students must go the district website and log in using their personal account and password. The student username is the letter ‘s’ followed by the student number, and the password is the last four numbers of the student number followed by capitalized first and last initials, and the year the student was born. For example John Smith was born in 2001, so his username is s12345678, and his password is 5678JS01. Once you are signed in to the district website, look for My Tiles and then search for MackinVia. Choose Palm Springs Middle School and sign in. There are some great books and series available to check out and read online, and the district will be offering incentives for readers. If you are not sure how to log in, ask a teacher for computer access to sign up and get started on your summer reading. If you are in 8th grade and headed to high school next year, your access will switch to your high school sometime in the summer, so if you have trouble logging in using PSMS, try logging in to your high school access. Welcome to 9th grade!
Mrs. Singer’s Orchestra students played their final concert on Wednesday, and many students received awards for outstanding performances throughout the year.
Ms. Yorston’s students participated in making bookmarks for the Palm Springs Library bookmark competition. She says “it’s a great opportunity for these students to create something in their minds and to promote reading.” The students brainstorm great ideas to make these awesome bookmarks drawing their designs big sheets of paper and then printing them in a smaller version. The students who win the competition also receive a free book of their choice. “Every year Palm Springs Library holds a contest making bookmarks. It’s happened for over ten years and it’s been great for the students to participate,” says Ms. Yorston. Kiara A.
