Library Schedule 2018-2019
Below is the Library Schedule. The school uses a 6-day rotation schedule so classes do not have Library on a set day of the week.
The Library mission is threefold:
- To help every student develop and use inquiry thinking skills needed for Middle School,
- To advance through our Spanish Immersion program, and
- To develop lifelong readers.!
The LMC will support this mission by providing all students and staff with a learning environment that supports critical thinking skills and hands-on learning. The LMC promotes this mission by collaborating with teachers to ensure library learning is an extension of classroom while cultivating students’ ability to access a range of resources, and share their new knowledge using 21st century tools.
