My Students

The library is a busy place during the school day and during the summer. We have projects from puzzles and LEGOs to iPads and video production available at all times. It is the hub of the school!

Our library is a place students love to come to and not just for a good book.

Our school has a population of over six hundred kindergarten to fifth grade students. All visit the library for forty-five minutes at least once a week. We are happy that we have created an environment where students feel welcome to come many times during the week outside of class time. We are a growing rural community with almost fifty percent of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunches.

My Project

As part of STEM: Light Up Science, students will conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances. These lava lamps will show the mixing of 2 substances and what happens with them.

Who doesn't love a lava lamp?

Students will also make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. These electricity balls will show them the energy that can’t always to seen.

Students will love these hands-on science projects and will be engaged that whole time! Learning has never been so fun!
