All students have a Special in the library once every four days. TK-2nd grade students have more traditional Library class, with storytime and book checkout. 3rd and 4th graders have a combination of Library and Technology class, while 5th and 6th graders have Technology class. Once a month, all classes take part in Maker Week, where we do an activity in the makerspace, from making a roller coaster for a marble with toilet paper rolls to making stop motion videos using iPads. We also facilitate the 1KB4K program for preschool (1,000 Books Before Kindergarten).
We hold maker nights, where students can bring their parents to the makerspace, a few times during the year and also during the evenings of elementary conferences.
