Entries for January 2014


If you're interested in reading current magazines (such as Newseek, National Geographic, Girl's Life, ESPN, and more) on your computer, tablet or smartphone, you should pay a visit to your public library website. Both the Kent District Library and the Grand Rapids Public Library have digital magazines that are available for checkout. All you need is a valid library card.

If you're interested in learning how to do this, you can either view this introductory video:

Or, you can access the introductory guides provided by each library district:

GRPL - Zinio quick start guide

KDL - Zinio quick start guide

After you have further questions after viewing the video or reading the quick start guide, feel free to contact Mr. Patrick at cpatrick@fhps.net, or contact your public librarian. They will be more than happy to help you download your first magazine.

Yeah, having your schoolwork posted on the fridge at home is cool. But having a video you made posted on the White House website and screened at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? We think that’s pretty cool, too. That’s why we’re super-excited to announce the first-ever White House Student Film Festival: a video contest created just for K-12 students, and whose finalists will have their short films shown at the White House. Finalist videos may also be featured on the White House website, YouTube channel, and social media pages.
