Ever wondered what happens in the media center?  Well, here's your chance to find out!

We support student learning using the same standards as classroom teachers over six different grade levels. We also use technology standards from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and standards from the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). 

We encourage curiosity and a love of reading by keeping our shelves stocked with the latest fiction and non-fiction books we can find for our students. 

We support creativity and innovation with our Maker Mornings and makerspace lessons while gently teaching students the importance of Growth Mindset.  

Yes, we're busy, but we love it!
