Kindergarten - 5th grade students spend an hour each week in our library. They come in to do more than just check out books! Our focus this year is Growth Mindset. All students have the ability to learn, however, many students in our school do not feel they have the "smarts". We hear the word "can't" used frequently. The activities that we do in our library teaching thinking skills, problem solving and take a great deal of perseverance. From coding, robotics and legos to collaboration STEM projects, we are not your typical elementary school library! It is FAR from quiet!
