Diegueño's "Learning Commons", formerly known as the Media Center, is the "Family Room" of the campus.
Check here often to find out what's available, what's new and what's goin' on!
Come to the Family Room and meet me, Mrs. Coy. I love to talk about books and make recommendations, but, I especially want to hear what you are reading and what you recommend.
Graphic Novels and Manga. There are many titles in the "family room"! Also good for CAT.
New books are being added to the book shelves all the time. Be the first to read one (or more!!!). Hopefully, you'll make a recommendation bookmark for the book. It's easy and fun! Come in and CHECK 'EM OUT!!!
Thanks to generous donations from various families and our wonderful PTSA...we have more than 30 new books, so...

Book Lover and an E-Reader Owner?
Do you know how to "borrow" books from the Public Library for your e-reader? Check out the Resources tab or come in and I will show you how.
Are you "Connected"?
Do you have a new device? Come in and I will make sure that you are connected and ready to go!
Bring in your own earbuds or headphones so you can listen to music or your games when you are working in the Learning Commons. Many teachers will let you use them during assignments in here. And, I let you use them any time.
Contests for Students
Throughout the year, various companies and organizations offer different types of contests for writing and art and etc. I post as many as I find as often as I find them. Some have prizes, some are just for recognition. Two years ago, one of Diegueño's students entered a Mother's Day writing competition and won breakfast out with his Mom and he read his poem to all the attendees! How exciting is that?
Check with me. I post the contest information here, on bulletin boards in the Learning Commons and they are announced on the morning announcements. Get crackin'!
