Our school supports all children to feel safe physically, socially, emotionally, and academically. The school addresses students needs in holistic ways, taking into account their relationships, self-regulation, academic competence, and physical and emotional well-being. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 86% of our students being economically disadvantaged, 26% with limited English Proficiency & 15% with disabilities.
The library is a place where our students feel safe and engaged.
We are redesigning our library, transforming it into a community space and learning commons that is accessible to our students and their families outside of normal school hours. We want the library to be the heart of the school. In the summer, we provide summer library programming in partnership with the Brown County Library. The donations will help us provide flexible furniture and spaces that will allow for collaboration and a sense of community.
The donation of the NeoRoc stools will go to complete part of a bigger project to include flexible and collaborative seating, an active learning conferencing center with integrated technology, and maker space areas in the library. We have committed to transforming and opening our library for the purpose of engaging families and community.
Our goal is to create a new inspiring library space for our students that supports and extends student learning in new ways.
We are hoping this is just the start of transforming our library media center into a 21st learning space for our students, staff and community members.
