Be There Dad

BE THERE DAD

We want YOU…to be a BE THERE DAD!
Huntersville Elementary is so excited to have a “Be There Dad” chapter.  http://betheredad.org. Be There Dad® is an organization whose purpose is to help dads become engaged and stay involved in the lives of their children. The Be There Dad (BTD) concept relies on the “power of presence”. That idea says that when dads are involved in the lives of their children in a positive way, good things happen.
Our chapter is called the H.E.R.O.E.S. of HES!
Last year, the HEROES helped open car doors in the morning, assisted in cleanup projects around school campus and put on a “Ninja Warrior” event. This year we want to do even more!
We welcome those of you who have been a part of this wonderful group and we would love for more Dads to join and help in this program.  Please contact Jeff Price at jgprice2001@gmail.com to join or for more information!

ONE Access

Discover e-books & more with ONE Access!
What does ONE Access offer?
ONE Access has two components this year-something for CMS students and something for CMS staff.
For CMS students:
ONE Access, or “One Number Equals Access,” uses students’ school identification numbers instead of separate library cards. With their ONE Access account, students can:
*Access Library research databases
*Borrow digital materials such as e-books, e-audiobooks, magazines, music and video
*Borrow up to 10 print or audio books (no DVDs or music CDs)
There are no overdue fines for ONE Access accounts, but users are responsible for fees on lost or damaged books.
For CMS staff:
If you’re a member of staff in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system, this year your NC EdCloud login number will be a ONE Access E-account, giving you instant access to all of Charlotte Mecklenburg Library’s online resources. You’ll be automatically enrolled on September 1, 2016.
Here’s how to get started using your ONE Access E-account:
*Go to http://www.cmlibrary.org
*Access resources using your User Name and Pin: ◦Username: CMS+ your 10 digit NC EdCloud login number. For example CMS1234567890
◦Pin number: Last four digits of your login number. For example 7890
Your 10 digit login number is found on your pay stub under Employee ID
These efforts are part of an ongoing commitment by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to benefit the community by increasing literacy and educational success.

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo – the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out www.shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome app!
