We are looking for volunteers to help out in the library on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. Whether you are in need of family service hours, just want to give of your time, or you LOVE being around books, you are WELCOME to join us!
Our volunteers do a variety of things each day, and are a vital and necessary part of our SMS Library! The library could not run smoothly without the many extra hands and hearts that volunteer each year! Some of the tasks our volunteers do when they come in to help, are checking in books, helping students check out books, shelving, creating labels for new books, covering new books, researching AR information, laminating, creating overdue notices, and much more!
We offer FREE on the job training and benefits… 1) You can sign up to volunteer while your child has library class! 2) You can sign up when your child does NOT have library class! 3) You can see the new books FIRST! 4) You can become adept at laminating! 5) And so much more! If any of this sounds good to you, please sign up to be a library volunteer!

Disciple of Christ Daily Reflection for September 1

Posted on: September 1st, 2015 | School News


Gospel Reflection for Luke 4:31-37

In today’s Gospel, we read about Jesus as a teacher. He taught in the synagogue and they were amazed at His teaching because he spoke with authority. This reminds us that we are all students – even our teachers and the principal – we are all students together listening to and learning from Jesus as He speaks His word to us in the Gospel. We also learn from Jesus’ actions.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus comes face to face with a demon who hears Jesus speaking and is afraid of Jesus’ power. Even the demon calls out and recognizes Jesus as “The Holy One of God.” This reminds us that everything God created in some way speaks to us of God or reflects the beauty of God. Today is the first World Day of Prayer for Creation. We remember that all creation, every little creature and every large being, from ants to archangels, belongs to God. We give thanks that God created us and we remind ourselves of our dependence on God as our Creator and Father.

We practice the virtue of faith today as we acknowledge God’s power and believe that Jesus is “The Holy One of God.” We ask for the virtue of faith that we may truly know God and all that He revealed. We ask St. Thomas the Apostle, who said to Jesus “My Lord and My God” to pray for us, that we too may believe with great faith in Jesus.

Starting that day, you can register and pick up your reading record sheet at any one of the three Worthington Library branches, or even online! The program ends August 1st.

This is a great way for students, and parents alike, to nurture their love of reading, while having fun and earn prizes too! Hope to hear all about the books everyone has read when we return in August!
