A Message From The Principal

Dear Parent,

Have your child show you how easy it is for him or her (and you too) to access electronic books with their Chrome Books! The Bates Middle School Library Media Center now offers students books to read on a variety of topics - and it is only a click away any time of the day or night - at school or at home. We are thrilled to be increasing opportunities for information gathering and for pleasure reading! Studies have shown that the single most important thing you can do to help a child succeed is to encourage him or her to read. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact Ms. Vaughn, our Library Media Specialist.
