Calling all aspiring actors and techies! Titan Library will be sponsoring a video production of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart, a story of madness and murder! There will be 9 acting positions available, as well as a need for videographers, video editors, makeup artists, and costume/scene designers. If you have an interest, we can definitely use your talents! Come by the library to pick up a copy of the play! We will be having a meeting on Friday, October 4th!
Thank you to all the students who completed their reading assignments and were able to attend the author visit with Malin Alegria! The charismatic author showed up in a bright orange dress, fashioned after the quineanera dress featured in Estrella's Quinceanera. She role played scenes from some of her books, providing a very entertaining show. Alegria also inspired several students to pursue their goals of being writers, explaining her unlikely journey into the book publishing world. As an extra perk, authors Guadalupe Garcia McCall and Rene Saldana Jr. also made an appearance at TSTEM Library toward the end of the visit. Check out the slide show below for pictures of this great event!
Congratulations go out to all of our BRIGHT Summer Reading Rock Stars! On September 20th, students enjoyed breakfast in the library to celebrate their reading success. Top readers from each grade level were awarded a large bag of books as well as their Reading Rock Star t-shirts. Prize bags were also raffled off at the breakfast. On Tuesday, September 24th, our top 4 readers were honored at PSJA's annual BRIGHT Summer Reader Ceremony. This event is always a fun experience! Check out the slideshow below for pictures of the events!
On September 28th, TSTEM, PSJA High, PSJA Southwest, and Sonya Sotomayor High School will be taking students to the Austin Teen Book Festival in Austin, Texas! Students will be given the opportunity to listen in on author panels covering many different genres, meet and greet the authors, and get their books signed. It is sure to be a memorable experience!
