Our library is a vibrant space that has student-friendly furniture, a colorful mural painted by students and staff, and a welcoming librarian. Elementary students receive weekly classes and all students are welcome to visit the library during breaks/lunches where they can access computers, play a board game with a classmate, or check out some books. Students have access to over 6,000 physical/digital books.
We believe in the importance of students applying their learning to real life problems and developing solutions through trial and error. As a result, we have been in the process of developing our very own Makerspace to help facilitate transdisciplinary thinking and applying technology to help innovate solutions. Currently, we have a temporary space designated for this endeavor, which houses the office of our technology integration specialist, official sized Lego robotic tables, technology such as piper computer kits, raspberry pi technology, and our first 3D printer.
In 2019 we built our lecture hall, which is phase one of a two part project. The lecture hall is the foundation of our future library/makerspace. We do not have a projected date for the start of this project, but check out some of the potential sketches (note they are subject to change as we continue to brainstorm what is best for our students’ learning).
