Capital High math teacher honored at state awards ceremony
It was a day filled with anticipation and excitement as the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction honored regional Teacher of the Year finalists, including Capital High math teacher Carol McKay, before announcing the 2017 Washington State Teacher of the Year.
While the top honor went to a Quincy School District educator, Olympia School District Superintendent Dick Cvitanich said he couldn’t be more proud of McKay, one of eight finalists for the state award.
Library and district partner to bring students greater resources
Timberland Regional Library (TRL) and the Olympia School District (OSD) have formed a partnership to bring students access to a wider range and depth of information via the library’s vast electronic services collection.
Both organizations met for several months last spring to determine the feasibility of offering TRL materials to K-12 OSD students. From those meetings, the concept of an online-only Timberland library card was born and named “MyTRL.”
The MyTRL program, which launches September 21, provides students in elementary, middle and high schools access to the public library’s large and updated collection of research resources, eBooks, digital magazines, downloadable music, videos, and kids and teen homework help. While the first partnership of its kind for TRL, it is patterned after other similar library/school district partnerships statewide.
