Student Book Checkout Information If a student at Lackland ISD loves to read, he or she can be a frequent visitor to the Lackland ISD Library Media Center!

Lackland Elementary students visit the Media Center with their classes each week. Stacey Junior-Senior High students have an opportunity to come weekly with their learning lab class; they can also come on their own before or after school or during the day. All students are welcome during the school day on a pass. The Media Center opens at 7:15 Monday – Friday and closes at 4:00 except on Fridays at 3:30. Elementary closes for lunch from 11:20 to 11:50. Elementary students generally follow grade guidelines for number of books they may check out. Check with your student’s teacher or a librarian for more information. We want to teach accountability for books – but our goal is to encourage reading and provide rich, engaging materials for all. With hundreds of books checked out daily, the Media Center staff has learned that Lackland ISD students certainly love to read!

Tuskegee Airman

Page 6 of 10 Sept. 16, 2011

Students meet WWII Tuskegee Airman, honor America's heroes For 24 hours straight, beginning at 8 a.m. on Sept 15, Lackland AFB and Basic Military Training took part in remembering and honoring our POWs/MIAs -- those who served with honor and gave their lives in service to our Country. In each squadron, a baton was carried around the track, never stopping, carried by military members, civilians, veterans and family members. Lackland Airmen were also honored to be in the presence of former POWs and men of honor, such as Dr. Granville C. Coggs, F.A.C.R., one of the original Tuskegee Airmen. He is 86 years old. There are eight living Tuskegee Airmen here in San Antonio. Between 1943 and 1946, Dr. Coggs served in the U.S. Army Air Corps as an aerial gunner, aerial bombardier and pilot for the North American B-25 "Mitchell" bomber during World War II. He went on to later attend Harvard and earn his medical degree in 1953, becoming a career radiologist. More recently, Dr. Coggs won a gold medal in track at the Senior Olympics in 2010.

The 323rd Training Squadron family, including Garrett Greenwood (5th, Esparza) and his sister Griffin Greenwood (2nd, Kerr) were honored to hear Dr. Coggs speak the morning of Sept. 16 and run with him and the squadron on the track. Griffin, 7, ran with the trainees for 2 miles! (photo 33) Garrett and Griffin awakened at 4:30 a.m. to get to be a part of meeting one of America's heroes.

POWs/MIAs, veterans and heroes -- We will never forget.

Recycling

Paper Recycling Facts Paper is the most common material in our trash. Because of this, in order to significantly reduce the amount of trash in our landfills, we need to recycle paper.

Below is a list of Paper Recycling Facts. Around 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S. To produce each week's Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut

down. Every ton of paper recycled saves more than 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. One million tons of recovered paper is enough to fill more than 14,000 railroad cars. Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials.

It takes 24 trees to make 1 ton of newspaper. An average American uses 465 trees worth of paper during his or her lifetime. Recycling half the world's paper would free 20 million acres of forest land.

Paper plus cardboard combined make up 73% of the materials in the landfill.
