LIBRARY MISSION STATEMENT
TEACHERS AND STUDENTS READ AROUND THE WORLD!
Teachers and students will explore exciting destinations from around the world during the school day! Students come to the library once a week and love to read in the beautiful new loft among the other worldly additions to the library decor! The library reflects the school's major focus of foreign languages from the artistic Spanish tiles to the geometric patterned Arabic screens. If you have not seen the library, please do so! Students will discover new cultures as they read around the world!
To promote global learning, students have access to books in Mandarin, Arabic, and Spanish as well as multicultural books.
CURRENTLY WORKING ON:

There is a vocabulary center, a nonfiction center, an art center, a scavenger hunt center and more. Students enjoy learning about the holiday through the various subjects. Primary students are also learning about fairytales and the different versions of fairytales. We are starting with Cinderella fairytales so ask them about CinderEdna, Cinderpenguin and Adelita!!
