Hammond Eastside Magnet students enjoyed learning how wool is spun into yarn in the library on November 16, 2017. Loretta Sturgill (left) from Black Sheep Knits, librarian Monica Sullivan (center), and Alex Butterworth (right) from Hammond Library spun yarn instructed students on spinning yarn and knitting, an industry the original american colonists would have partaken. Pictured here are Pre-K students from Paige Normand's class.
HEM librarian, Monica Sullivan, reads "Giraffes Can't Dance" by Giles Andreae to Mrs. Schilling's 2nd grade class.
Lynda Brumfield of the Crafty Southern Belle sponsored an "adopt-a-class" auction to raise money for Mrs. Tawnya Smith's second grade class at Hammond Eastside Magnet. Students were very excited to receive supplies and a snack. A big "thank you" to The Crafty Southern Belle for supporting local students!
