Have a Great Summer!

At the end of our 13th year here at Murray Hill Media Center we can now finally say to the kids we've been here since before they were born! LOL (EEP!) But really, so many amazing memories, so many wonderful families, awesome kids who come back and visit from high school, college, and beyond! Kids who have touched our lives and made a happy difference and it fills our hearts to think of the many more wonderful memories to come! [snif snif] OK...before I get maudlin here let us just say.....
Thank you Murray Hill Middle School community and Howard County!
Have a great summer everyone!!!
.... and READ! READ! READ!

Bookfellas: Bring Back Your Books - Or Else!

Bookfellas: Bring Back Your Books - Or Else!

I hope you don't have any overdue books!
Or the Bookfellas may just visit and
give a gentle reminder ...

This video is an oldie but goodie...all students appearing in this video have since graduated from high school! Yeah...this is how we rock the iMovie OLD SCHOOL STYLE!~
We had the situation before the Jersey shore was even an idea in some MTV programmers dream!

And this is just a joke, really! ...we don't have our own dark suited, guitar case carrying tough guys playing cards in the Library Media Center just waiting to go hunt down kids who have overdue books.....and then getting misty eyed when one comes back on it's own.

Justin Bieber Has Overdue Books!

Whoda thunk it! Justin Bieber has a very important public service announcement to tell you abooot! (he's from Canada..they say aboot!) With a special guest! Please don't be "THAT GUY" and bring back your library media books!

A video created for MHMS students but anyone is welcome to embed or use! (the KIDS Made me do it! - and funny...none of them (unusually!) wanted to do his voice!?) What!? LOL

Another cool video created by MHMS Students...a second MSA Pep Rally Video!

photo credit:
Maclean’s Interview: Justin Bieber - The R & B sensation talks about Usher and Justin Timberlake, his mom and his fans, and what his swagger coach teaches him...

And to quote about that Swagger....which had me ROFLMAO

"Q: It’s been reported that you have a “swagger” coach. Can you explain to me what is that?
A: It’s pretty simple, it’s basically a swagger coach, he kind of teaches me, he helps me just stay swaggerific. I don’t know.

Q: What is it to be swaggerific?
A: You don’t know? I mean, it swaggers. It’s confidence, it’s style, I don’t know how else to put it. It’s swagger. It’s a word."

Edward knows the importance of keeping an intact we all know throughout the years he has been an avid reader...thus he patiently urges Bela to be responsible and bring back those books.

Now...i've ranted before how annoying and MarySue i think Bela is...sorry hon....but here's the whining clumsy little thing who still can't quite get the hang of returning those Library Media Books!

the first movie was created by the talented husband & wife PSA duo...Mr. and Mrs. Mike Hobson Media Specialist, Oakland Mills MS

the second movie was created using Blabberize by Ms. Jones -
